Polyhedron's are solid 3-D objects like cubes or pyramids, and so it could seem a little dubious why New Mantra may name is emotionally round and smooth r&B influenced track that name. However, "Polyhedron," which samples both How to Dress Well and All Saints, is a sharp and well-produced work that highlights exactly where the young producer is heading, and the precise solidity of the song expresses why "Polyhedron" is so amazing.
The music video is simple and appropriately set in nature, as a young man connects with the environment around him. It's not the highest budget video out there, however, with the talent this young artist has amassed, it's not going to be too long until he's headed to bigger and better things.
Snag this track, along with the EP for free via Bandcamp.
