Armed with a belter of a second album, Polish Club are heading our way, playing in Adelaide tomorrow night as part of their nation ‘Meet Me at the Iguana’ tour.
Named after a legendary but now defunct Kings Cross bar, Iguana is a super-charged record of infectious rock and roll, that captures the highs and lows of a big night. And it’s that experience that Polish Club are aiming to deliver in their live show as they transform the recently revamped Lion Art Factory into their very own dive bar for the evening.
The new LP also marks an evolution of the band’s sound, with the duo expanding their pallet for this outing, as they push their raw rock stylings through meticulous audio production.
“Having been in this band for five years, I think there’s less time for us to faff about. That’s why we put heaps of pressure on evolving the sound; we haven’t got time to bang out three similar albums,” says drummer John-Henry.
“It’s the tightrope of doing what you do best and what attracted people to you in the first place, but expanding it and not rehashing old habits,” adds singer/guitarist Novak.
For a taste of what to expect, check out the film clip for recent single, ‘We Don’t Care’, recorded in a karaoke bar and featuring Novak preforming a live vocal take of their own song in the guise of a slightly inebriated punter.
Catch Polish Club at Lion Arts Factory, Thursday 4 July with support from Dulcie and Approachable Members of Your Local Community.
