Polly Panic is chamber rock's dismissal of "radio" rock. “ A nucleus of cello, drums and vocals drive these tunes. The listener is immediately struck by an assaulting tenderness entangled with dark, odd metered theater. Think PJ Harvey meets Captain Beefheart.”(Robert Church, Radio FM Syndication”). The music alternates between the impact of a train to a syncopated sputter and crunch with a southern edge,offsetting the sweet, inviting vocals. There are anthems of mourning and consolation, long lined melodies instead of chants, an extensive layering of instruments, and lyrics that open themselves from reflection and sorrow to joy in the attack.
Within the songs' austere outlines, Polly Panic finds limitless gradations between exaltation and despair, all-consuming and irrevocable, as strong as religious faith and as terrifying as a revelation.
Polly Panic is not new to the stage. She released her first record, “Painkiller”, and toured extensively.
“Fragment” is her 2nd album, soon to be released. Polly Panic's development as a musician is obvious. This new album has more on its mind then the elemental impact.
Jenette Mackie is currently living in Asheville, NC. She released her first album,“Painkiller” in 2006. After touring for a while, Jenette traveled to South America and lived, reassessing life and all that it brings. She came back with an album even stronger than the first.
