Since their inception 18 months ago Polemics have been prolific in writing and releasing new
material, bringing to life their debut EP ‘Conflict’, a live EP, three singles and a series of DIY
videos with great reception from bloggers, playlisters, radios and musicheads around the world.
With the UK’s live music scene finally seeing a rebirth after a gloomy few months, bringing these
tracks to the real world is now the main focus. To bolster the live show, Polemics have brought in
new member Rafael Martins (ex-Chang) in charge of the low frequencies. One more piece of the
Polemics puzzle seems to have fallen in the right place and they are paving the way to what is
shaping to be a busy new year, with a small run of shows to promote the EP and the fine tuning
of their debut album in the new year next on the list.
Hailing from Bristol, UK, Polemics are Nathan Smith and Jeff Ingle (Yo No Se), school friends
united by a passion for heavy music. They officially formed in 2019 and after a series of ferocious
live shows they established themselves as an exciting emerging fixture of the Bristol live scene.
Polemics deftly combine their natural edge, attitude and fury with skilled musicianship and hugely
bombastic drums. The elements of hardcore and angry vocals are matched with songwriting,
chunky riffs and a pop sensibility. They are naming The Mars Volta and Smashing Pumpkins as
big influences whereas blogs and fans are calling comparisons with IDLES, Fugazi and Primus.
