Polo, a synth-pop trio from Leeds have released the tracks Gold Horizon and Soak that comes off their forthcoming EP Alice.

Kate notes, “The EP, more than anything, has allowed us to create a piece of work that defines who we are and where we were at one particular point. You can’t always do that with just single releases. We have a body of work that has really introduced us, and from here we can really explore.”
