Allow me to introduce you to Polartropica, the music endeavor of Los Angeles based, whimsical space-pop artist, Ihui (eeway) Cherise Wu. She was born in Taiwan and raised in California and her style is the perfect combination J-pop meets bubblegum psych pop. her music blends together quirky pop melodies, futuristic synths and classical string arrangements. You may think that is quite a mix, but take a listen and you will agree, it works!!
Polartropica has just released a cinematic yet whimsical video for her new song, Golden Soul. ‘The video details interior struggles and how with compassion for one another and understanding our differences, there can be healing.’ It features mesmerizing dreamlike vocals, swirling electro pop and engaging J-pop characteristics. You are immediately drawn into the story and then the music takes over and has you hooked. The video was directed, filmed and edited by White Sitar – Grant White, Sam Sitar. Check out the video here:
Polartropica derived after Wu heard a song which couldn’t be defined by a genre – ‘Polartropic’ by Mark Foster. Admiring the contrast between both ‘polar’ and ‘tropical’, Wu decided to formulate a place where things can exist where they don’t belong. Polartropica fuses elements of complete opposites together with the outcome resulting in a unique, ethereal sound that defies all sonic worlds. Using both organic and synthetic instruments, Wu conceived a visionary dream world for listeners to escape to. Wu professes, “I wanted to create a healing, inspiring and empowering space with just the right amount of disco-party!”
