German duo pølaroit are relatively new to the electronic music scene, having stormed into the limelight with their debut EP Expedition Into in January 2019. Since then, their output has been prolific, with a further 3 EPs being released over the next 18 months.
Sør is the latest offering, a two-track single that includes the previously released Norr as a B-side. Sør is delightfully atmospheric in its opening, with wide synth pads and ocean waves washing over the listener’s ears, before the bass and synth lines kick in with opposing rhythms that bounce off of each other. Norr is a more subdued track, with a delicate piano intro developing into a rousing techno beat.
