"Polina – Well Wisher Split (2011)"

Polina is a Canadian screamo band that brings the pain like a more chaotic version of Hot Cross. Well Wisher from England is an mathy indie-rock with semi-screamy vocals. Together these bands fucking rule and together provide a a great mix of music ultimately making this split unique and enjoyable to listen to. - http://skreamyourlungsout.com


"Review: Polina – S/T Demo"

This Polina tape is one in a million. It’s like the unheard mathcore
recordings of the early 90s. The tape is scarily angelic. It’s
comprised of discordant and sometimes grating vocals while complicated
high pitched shreddery is blatantly blown out to an ear pleasing
finish. The music is so remarkable it almost makes you want to end
whatever pop rock music project you’ve been working on and start a
scuzzed-out complirock power-band like Polina. Aside from the music,
the tape itself is magnificent. It comes in an artistic cardboard fold
case that displays a yellow rodent and includes an insert of all the
lyrics. Ridiculously high praise for the folks at “Désordre Ordonné”
and for the dudes in Polina. Get it now…But while you wait for the
shipment, check out a track here: http://www.myspace.com/polinapolina - http://arcaids.wordpress.com

Bio

Formed in August 2009, Polina is a post-hardcore band based out of St John’s, Newfoundland. Consisting of members Chris Scott (vocals), Jordan Kelly (guitar), Aaron Mcloughlan (guitar), Stephen Reynolds (bass guitar) and Peter Andrews (drums), Polina fuses elements of punk, hardcore, math rock and screamo into their own unique style of post-hardcore, with influences ranging from Orchid and Pageninetynine to Kidcrash and Loma Prieta.
Throughout their two year existence, Polina have put out a self-titled cassette, released domestically by Montreal label Desordre Ordonné and internationally on the Malaysian label Utarid Tapes, a split 7” with Well Wisher, from Manchester, England, which came out on Toronto’s A Mountain Far and Montreal’s L’oeil De Tigre respectively, and a soon to be released self-titled 7” which will be released by St John’s label Anteduvia.
This summer, the band will embark on an eastern Canadian tour, playing thirteen shows from St John’s to Toronto.
