Fanciful and imaginative, space pop/psych artist Polartropica has released her new video “Wild Lyfe”. The new single showcases wistful soundscapes, unique instrumentation and delicate dreamy vocals. With an eccentric and colorful aesthetic, Polartropica takes inspiration from her Taiwanese culture. The video narrates a tale of a fancy human hosting a garden tea party featuring bird dancers that exist solely for human enjoyment. The birds soon escape their captivity and out in the wild they become the beautiful majestic creatures they were meant to be. Her stunning visuals illustrate how we must treat all creatures with kindness and respect.
Polartropica is the musical endeavor of Los Angeles based Ihui (eeway) Cherise Wu. Born in Taiwan yet raised in California, she’s known for combining quirky melodies with futuristic synths, creating her own distinctive style of bubblegum psychedelia.
After hearing ‘Polartropic’ by Mark Foster, Wu admired the contrast between both ‘polar’ and ‘tropical’ and she decided to build a place where things can exist where they don’t belong. This created a special fantasy world for listeners to escape to. She explains, “I wanted to create a healing, inspiring and empowering space with just the right amount of disco-party!”
Incorporating elements of 90s pop and intergalactic space atop classical arrangements, Polartropica’s music transports you to an ethereal dream world. With a distinguished sound like nothing you’ve heard before, check out the video for “Wild Lyfe” above.
