Polyenso (formerly Oceana) have been impressing people left and right with their new sound over the past couple weeks. If you haven't been one of those people, now it's your chance. We're premiering the track "Push" off the band's debut full length, One Big Particular Loop which drops tomorrow. You can stream the song on the band's AP.net profile or in the replies. You can also find a short documentary of the band with the song as well. If you dig what you hear, you can pick pre-order the new album on Bandcamp.
The Self Promotion Forum this week holds the wonderful Grandview. The band deal in good old-fashioned hard edged pop punk which displays both intelligence and intense likability. These guys are the sort of band who could easily earn fans of all of the genres, with their sound featuring touches of emo, pop rock and pretty much everything. Get in on this; their EP is 'name your price' on their Bandcamp. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight?
