Listen: Polock's "Everlasting" [ESP]

Spanish pop-rock band Polock returns with an upbeat new song and a brand new album coming out next month.

As a new single, “Everlasting” does a good job of distancing itself from Polock’s previous work. It has a cockier, less “indie” sound, filled with beachy and warm Mediterranean vibes, along with the weirdest lyrics I’ve heard in a while, possibly thanks to the magic element that comes with learning English as a second language.

These subtle musical differences come from the way their second album Rising Up was conceived. For six months during spring and summertime the band moved to a beach house near their hometown, complete with a swimming pool and court walls, as opposed to the winter they endured in Berlin to finish up their first LP. The new recording process was documented on an upcoming series of videos called “Summer Rising.”

Rising Up will be out on April 1st. For now, it’s time to rejoice in those magnificent lyrics.
