Hailing from Chicago, Jonny Polonsky writes interstellar anthems for a new generation of mindfreaks. Songs of sex and death and love… hymns of despair and transcendence. A celebration of what it feels like to be human; from the exalted, grandest moments of euphoria and bliss, to the universal pain of loss and letting go. Beauty at every turn. Polonsky‘s new album ‘Kingdom of Sleep’ comes out in a few months’ time, but I present you the lead track today ‘The Weeping Souls’.
NYC’s Big Takeover Magazine says this “shines brightly with the sparkling interplay of various mellifluous guitars, Polonsky’s wistfully twisting vocals, perceptive lyrics, gently reflective piano notes, and mellow drum shuffle”, calling this “a catchy and resounding mid-tempo track with impeccable delivery and production”. Polonsky has recorded and/or performed as a side musician with Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond, System of a Down, Vincent Gallo, Donovan, Dixie Chicks, Perry Farrell, Liz Phair, Pete Yorn, Lisa Loeb, Cedric Bixler-Zavala of At the Drive In, and many others.
