    Weirdest shit I've heard in a long time (Polyphia)

    I guess you have to do stuff like this to stand out these days?

    Came across them surfing Dimarzio stuff, and it's so bizarre. I can't even put my finger on what it is. It's instrumental bluesy jazz shred but with a dark undertone, quite a pop (almost disco?) groove to it.

    It's certainly too weird for my liking, but credit where it's due for originality





    All the weird shit aside, they've got some chops!



    All the subtle tapping and harmonics and stuff is absolutely spot-on and a well-honed technique.

    Ask your doctor today and see if Polyphia is right for you to treat your moderate to severe Crohn's disease.

    Cheers Mattayus, this is the kind of thing I have playing at work to keep me sane without diverting my concentration, and I was just starting to get bored of my current playlist.

    These guys are undoubtedly great players but I cant get into this at all.

    If there was a template for what technical guitar music would look and sound like if it was created by Durham or St Andrew's university graduates exclusively, who flipped a coin over staying in the band or auditioning for a spot on made in Chelsea this is it.

    Yeah they have a unique style for sure and this GOAT Video the song is to me simply brilliant and refreshing. Don't like everything they do but denying they are making something new and inventive. SAying otherwise is lying.

    Shit...
    Noodles

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    My friend introduced them to me about two years ago and I thought they were pretty refreshing. I never ended up picking up any of their albums, but I always kept thinking that I should.
