Jonas and Marius, who make up the duo pølaroit, have become known for their moody sound somewhere in between melancholic downtempo and uplifting melodies. The duo’s fascination with producing electronic music that retains warmth and intimacy has culminated in their newest EP, Pure.
The EP’s track Perfect Strangers is perhaps the best example of just how well the duo manages to infuse house music with a feeling of realness.
Jonas’ melancholic piano melody weaves itself seamlessly to Marius’ beats and analog synths, all the while Luna Morgenstern longing lyrics and voice carry listeners through in delight. What starts off as a mellow and wistful tune, builds up gently towards a clubby and incredibly catchy track that’s filled with nostalgia.
