“The pop melodies of early Supergrass, the swaggering faux-crap aesthetic of early Pavement, the jangly Manc idiocy of early Primal Screamâ€¦ Where Polytechnic’s debut is strongest is in the way they obscure these sounds and make them golden on their own terms.”
â€“ Drowned In Sound
â€œBang The Drumâ€ Single of The Week â€“ NME 2007
â€œOne of the most uplifting sounds to have emerged from Manchester in recent years, Polytechnic are fashionably angular but also joyously buoyantâ€ â€“ Rock Sound Magazine
Manchester is at it again. Like Polytechnicâ€™s Northern forefathers brandishing instruments before them, The Laâ€™s, Cast, The Stone Roses, all who sincerely played homage to the jingly-jangly sounds of California only with the added swagger and cockiness that is so familiarly British and is now so iconic and notorious in rock and roll history.
After supporting The Breeders, Doves, The Strokes and Nine Black Alps recently and touring with The Shins, Keane and Brett Anderson across Europe, Polytechnics are now ready to unleash their upbeat transatlantic pop guitar gems and glisten your ears with unforgettable melodies youâ€™ll be humming for days after.
â€˜Down â€˜Til Dawnâ€™ is an album of indie sunshine that knows both when to be raucous and when to chill out.” â€“ Rock Sound Magazine
â€œLike The Magic Numbers before them, in ”Man Overboard” the Manc hippies craft up a luscious dollop of shanty town”. BBC
