Polaris Rose is a Los Angeles Alt Rock duo comprised of Peter Anthony and Madelynn Elyse. They emerged onto the LA scene in the Fall of 2013 with the release of their debut EP, "The Moon & its Secrets".
The EP was not lost on the blogosphere, and was featured on IX Daily, The Ripple Effect, and Absolute Punk. Music videos for the EP’s two singles, “Chartreuse” and “Dreamers” were featured on 7Bit Arcade and Pure Grain Audio. Their EP release show was covered by Patrick O’Heffernan (NPR) , who stated: “Polaris Rose filled the room with seven songs altogether, impossibly well-crafted thanks to Peter’s enormous guitar chops and lyrical delivery, and Maddie’s room-filling voice and bass. As a live act, they top their studio album in sound quality as well as excitement, not always easy.”
Never resting, Polaris Rose immediately began work on their follow-up EP, “OceanSongs”. Initially imagined as a two-song release, the album “grew in the telling”, becoming a 5-song self-produced EP.
The duo released their debut single, “Goddess” in February 2014. The song was premiered on AltSounds and was also featured on Largehearted Boy and 7bit Arcade. Their follow-up single, "Hurricanes" premiered on 7Bit Arcade and was also featured on Pure Grain and Hunnypot Radio. “OceanSongs” was officially released on April 22nd, 2014 and was described as “a unique blend of catchy, melodic choruses and energetic performances that sets them apart from the indie scene norm. Their songs are full of eccentric harmonies, memorable lyrics, and well-crafted instrumentation that is made all the more impressive by the fact that they produce and record their songs by themselves (AltSounds.com).” Following the release of their third single "OceanEnding", the band was voted ‘LA Artist of the Month’ on LA Deli Magazine.
The duo’s debut full-length "Telescopes" is coming this November. The first single, “Perfect View” is currently available at PolarisRose.com
