Here’s someone to keep an eye on for next year: if you’ve heard of Black Polish already you’ll definitely know what’s up, but if not, it’s the solo project of Jayden Binnix from Maryland. They’ve put out a clutch of singles this year already, following on from 2021’s excellent OUT OF PLACE EP, not to mention announced their debut album is arriving in January.
We’re premiering a new song of theirs today, presenting a markedly softer side of Binnix’s music – ‘Streetsigns’ is a stripped-back acoustic song that finds them longing to cast off their self-destructive tendencies, a letter to an imagined community: “Streetsigns’ speaks of wanting to escape your self-destruction and be completely isolated; free to do whatever you please. It’s a love song for a place where responsibility doesn’t exist and guilt will never reside within you.“
Tune in below; it’s out tomorrow as the latest single from Forest (Monsters Live in the Trees), out on Friday January 26th 2024 via Ripple Music.
