Robyn body talk

At the beginning of the year reemerging pop-star, Robyn, announced that she would release three short records. Through out the past year Robyn has slowly crept into the psyche of pop-electro enthusiasts, with Body Talk Part 1 and 2 being released earlier this year and a tour with pop-R&B sure helped.

Polomo’s song composition is seamless and chaotic, he can craft beets, string, loops, and bleeps together that’s reminiscent to a collage.  Polomo has three bandmates helping him interpret his music for live performances; Jason Faries, drums; Leanne Macomber, keyboards; and Ronalds Gierhart, Guitars.  Each providing their own entertainment for the audiences.Between playing the keyboards and the tambourine Leanne was the person engaging the audience.  The only member on stage who’s face wasn’t hiding behind a curtain of hair she became the band’s avatar.
