I haven’t yet heard Pollens‘ debut album – Brighten & Break – but I’m quite taken with the polyrhythmic energy of the Helping Hand single so I aim to track it down as soon as possible.

The Seattle-based six piece have an infectious sound that goes to prove that you don’t need guitars and macho posturing to make great pop music.

Take a gander at the band performing the song live and see what you think:
