Nominated Best Electronic 2006 by The Riverfront Times
Winner Best Female Vocals 2006 in Riverfront Times "Best of St. Louis" edition.
"Polarized Mind...teamed up to create an unheard sound: something reminiscent of Pac-Man on his ghost hunt at a Kraftwerk concert."
- The Riverfront Times
An interesting and addictive electro rock duo from St. Louis, Polarized Mind has been dishing out their unique brand of music for the past two years. It's hard to believe that all this sound comes from only two people, Owen Godwin and Casey Dean, and from two very different musical backgrounds. Owen spent years in the rave scene as a techno producer and Casey was a thrash metal guitarist. Combined, they've created a sound that can best be described as electroclash with a cup of industrial added in and baked for 30 minutes until there is a crisp rock crown formed at the top.
They've received play for their debut CD "Numbers, not People" on internet radioas well as college and community radio stations nationally and internationally. Recently they were selected to compete on Rock Solid Pressure, the self proclaimed "Anti American Idol" which airs every Monday on M4radio.com, and even though they were taken by just a couple of votes, the hosts of the show liked their music so much, they decided to put it into rotation regardless (ordinarily a band must win in order to receive this). They've gained attention from electronic and goth radio shows, having tracks from their debut CD "Numbers, not People" put in to rotation and have been interviewed on air a few times.
Perhaps the most persuasive tool Polarized Mind has is their live show, which has them booked constantly per request.
"Live, they're a treat, indulging in space-age performance art/decor, creating a powerful sonic spectrum, taking great pride in their performance....Looking to find a truly unique St. Louis sound? Go see Polarized Mind, and let your preconceptions of techno wash away with the Martian tides."
