Australian duo Hermitude have unveiled their latest album, Pollyanarchy, their first full-length release since 2015’s Dark Night, Sweet Light.
The 11-track record features a star-studded cast of collaborators, including rappers Vic Mensa and Wes Period on “Dusk Till Dawn” and “Swerve,” respectively. Singers such as BJ the Chicago Kid, Bibi Bourelly and Hoodlem also contribute to the LP. Soaky Siren and Vory appear on the previously released single “Northern Lights.”
On the new album, the pair explore a more laid-back sound, compared to their previous releases. “We sort of came off the back of Dark Night, Sweet Light that was quite an energetic record and we’d done a lot of touring over two or three years, and the idea for us was, I guess, we always try to push ourselves into an area that we haven’t been before,” Hermitude told ABC Radio. “I think we were just feeling mellow, we wanted to write a more introspective record.”
