Before you get totally exhausted with electronic R&B, please stop and listen to Polyenso‘s new record. Formally known as Oceana, the Florida trio is here to destroy our boredom with a genre that has been dominated by bands like Glass Animals and Alt-J, and worn out by so many others.

With its first album under the new moniker, One Big Particular Loop, the band kept curiosity surrounding them, but with its latest album, Pure In The Plastic, Polyenso is sure to blow up. Songs like “Where To Grow (Where To Be Born)” bless the ground with samples reminiscent of Radiohead, then come out swinging with its beautiful and in your face verses, and then go back into hiding for the chorus; which will surely cause confusion on whether you should actually dance along with it or nod your head in rhythmic approval. Slower tracks like “Osaka Son”—with its haunting reverb vocals and background chanting—remind you of a wide, open forest where the rain has subsided and the sun comes out. You can also hear the hip-hop influence that is not shied away from in “Every Single Time.”

Well, the wonderful news for you readers is that the band is streaming the record in full (via Billboard), and you should definitely listen to it. Check it out below and let us know what you think. Also be sure to check out our interview with the band from earlier this year if you haven’t.
