Creating vivid instrumental imagery using complex rhythms and a unique precision that redefines the term “funk” for 21st Century audiences the 8 piece Polyrhythmics are proving to be one of Seattle’s finest exports.
With a hard-driving modern afro-psycho-beat sound composed of relentless rhythm, heart thumping bass lines, intricate guitar phrasings, avalanches of keyboard colors, melodic hooks and soaring horn solos the octet delivers a live experience to behold that immediately turns any joint into a funky dance party.
With the recent release of Octagon, the band begins another chapter to the story that began just 5 years ago as they continue to grow with a singular sonic muse of progressive and dynamic stature.

2015 has been a busy year for Polyrhythmics. The release of their full‐length album Libra Stripes in 2013 propelled them into appearances at major festivals across the country and fueled extended tours North, South, East, and West, energizing dancers and fans of creative groove music everywhere. Now they follow up with Octagon, a cinematic album that builds on the funk and afrobeat sounds of their previous work with psychedelic layers and fiery rhythms that will continue to get audiences out on the dance floor. Their third full‐length album is another strong piece of evidence that the band has a story to tell unlike the funk bands of the past and different than any band on the scene today. From the electrifying 3‐piece horn lines to the infectious interplay between the members of the rhythm section, each track takes the listener on a visceral journey, from section to groove‐infused section. Not just for vinyl heads, not just for dancers, Polyrhythmics make music in which listeners will get lost, get hyped, and get down.BUY NOW
