New Noise Magazine is hosting the exclusive premiere of an official video for “Foolish,” an intoxicating new track from Wenzhou, China-based POLYPHOZIA. The song precedes the trio’s debut album, set for release through Nefarious Industries in November.
Suitcase Of Voices showcases POLYPHOZIA‘s fusion of grunge, shoegaze, and progressive rock. The band seamlessly weaves the record’s ten tracks together in a narrative dealing with the aftermath of a relationship-ending argument. Suitcase Of Voices was recorded by the band members at several studios, their homes, and more throughout Wenzhou during the Spring and Summer of 2019, giving the album a very rich, organic sound. The record was mixed by David Klug at David Klug Studio and mastered by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering.
POLYPHOZIA guitarist/vocalist Christopher Henry offers of the “Foolish” single, “We wrote ‘Foolish’ during one practice when (bassist) Zim suggested we ought to have a song about driving. He came up with the main bass riff and the rest fell into place quite naturally. By the next practice, we were ready to take it to the stage.”

POLYPHOZIA is a grunge/post-rock trio uniting guitarist/vocalist Christopher Henry (also of Fuck Your Birthday, Humans Etcetera), bassist Zim Chen, and drummer Logan Long. The fairly new band is already known throughout China, having performed live throughout the past few years, including several major festivals and more. Locally, the band is known as PÃ fÃ¡nzÃ¡ (pinyin), which translates to, “afraid of complication.” However, there has been no attempts to keep it simple. POLYPHOZIA‘s sprawling song structures are filled with lavish high points, roomy lows, unhurried build-ups, sudden halts, garage-rock clamor, and moments of ethereal wonder. As a band of American and Chinese nationals, having conflicting cultures and languages plays a prominent role in songwriting and stylistic sensibility.
