One day in 2018, two talented American producers decided to take their multi-instrumental skills a step further and formed Polydrive. Influenced by acts like Tame Impala and Jon Bellion, brothers Cam and Cole began honing their commercial pop meets indie-pop sound. Polydrive has been featured in Talk About Pop Music, Indie Is Not A Genre and FV Music Blog; as well as receiving airtime from NHPR (New Hampshire Public Radio and other internet radio stations. The latest addition to Polydrive’s growing discography is the single ‘Need You To Want Me’.
Adopting a DIY approach to music production, Cam and Cole recorded the self-released ‘Need You To Want Me’ from their home studio (also known as their bedroom). With 2020 being a year of distressing instability and uncertainty, the duo wanted to release something positive. Enlisting the guitar skills of their friend Josh, Polydrive recorded an energetic, upbeat and optimistic song about cherishing relationships over riches.
Describing ‘Need You To Want Me’ as catchy is an understatement; even their self-described “dumb catchy” has nothing on the engaging single. Expertly produced, Polydrive effortlessly incorporates different instruments in different sections to sonically represent the buoyant narrative. While the melding of synths, keys, drums and an amazing guitar solo by Josh places you on an instrumental rollercoaster, it is Cole’s warm and vibrant voice that enhances the “love over riches” concept.
A soothing and flowing track enriched by brusque but melodic vocals, ‘Need You To Want Me’ is utterly beguiling. With vivid imagery and charming lyricism, Polydrive proves themselves to be an anthemic contender on the indie-pop scene.
