Polytechnics look to Break it Big in the United States

Unsigned, with an album ready to go and a sound that screams airplay – now is your chance to catch them live.


“Jolly indie tunes straight out of the same school as Weezer, The Magic Numbers and Pavement” – BBC

Dylan Giles (vocals/guitar)
Yuri Caul (bass/vocals)
Denny Hilton (guitar)
Tim Warren (drums)
Peet Earnshaw (keyboards/vocals)

“The pop melodies of early Supergrass, the swaggering faux-crap aesthetic of early Pavement, the jangly Manc idiocy of early Primal Scream… Where Polytechnic’s debut is strongest is in the way they obscure these sounds and make them golden on their own terms.”
– Drowned In Sound

“Bang The Drum” Single of The Week – NME 2007

“One of the most uplifting sounds to have emerged from Manchester in recent years, Polytechnic are fashionably angular but also joyously buoyant” – Rock Sound Magazine

Manchester is at it again. Like Polytechnic’s Northern forefathers brandishing instruments before them, The La’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 you’ll be humming for days after.

‘Down ‘Til Dawn’ is an album of indie sunshine that knows both when to be raucous and when to chill out.” – Rock Sound Magazine

“Like The Magic Numbers before them, in ”Man Overboard” the Manc hippies craft up a luscious dollop of shanty town”. BBC
