Polarized Eyes gained national airplay with their first release, Storm, on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape on 6Music when they were just 14 and 15. Subsequent tracks have gained stellar reviews and radio play. Their most recent releases Blackout in December 2020 and Real Boys in March 2021 have been played on Radio X, BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing Beds, Bucks and Herts and Amazing Radio. With new single, It’s Not An Accident, out The Fountain caught up with the band to discuss the video, plans and venues they wish to play again soon.

TF: You have a new video out, what has the reception been like to It’s Not An Accident?

It’s been amazing. There’s been so much positive feedback from all of our followers. It was our first video using green screen and we’re really pleased with how it came out. We’re really excited that the track’s getting loads of radio play, including from John Kennedy on Radio X. He’s given us loads of support over the last year and it means a lot that he was the first to play the new single.

TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?

It’s a high energy punk rock ode to love gone wrong.

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year?

We plan to gig A LOT!!! We’re really pleased that gigs are back on so it’s very exciting to create an amazing atmosphere with loads of people once again. We’ve got some new songs we’ve been working on over lockdown that we’re all set to record, including fan favourite Just Kids. We’d love to start working on our debut album, so if any record companies like what we do – come get us!!

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?

It’s really weird as we hadn’t done that many gigs before lockdown hit. Our recent gig at the Amersham Arms was awesome though and we’d definitely want to go back. Coming up we’re really excited about the gigs we’ve got lined up in July at Camden Assembly and The Good Mixer. We’re also looking forward to our first festivals later on this year.
