Polista Cool and Melodic in Junk Of The Heart


Montreal band Polista combines a cool, 90’s rock swagger with modern pop sensibilities in “Junk Of The Heart.”

The song wastes no time in starting with its cool energy, with the band sounding icy and melodic as they begin rolling through the track. The lyrical and melodic vocal performance stands beautifully with the song’s somewhat garagey feel, as Polista delivers a heartfelt offering.

“Junk Of The Heart” also has a wonderful retro feel that Polista capitalizes on nicely. The song’s loose and somewhat aged production gives it a beautiful aesthetic finish. The drums give a nice and bouncy feel that make the song seem as if it was ripped off a U2 record, with the bass grooves keeping the listener on track.

Polista does earn points for giving us a surprisingly insatiable chorus, its hooky feel giving the song some fantastic radio-friendliness. We love how contagious the song gets once it hits here, as Polista really begins to roll at a good pace. The song is already full of upbeat dancy energy, but here is when Polista really keeps us on our toes and commands our full attention.

The production’s 90’s garage feel is what really rounds the song into form, as Polista does good in adding a healthy amount of reverb to the make the song sound echoey and vulnerable. There’s much charm in this track as Polista gives us a healthy dose of 90’s rock.

The vocal work stands tight and strong against the chill and easy to vibe to instrumental. The song is an accessible gem, and a wonderful production allows “Junk Of The Heart” to shine even more.

While the song doesn’t seem to feel dynamic enough to match its charm and poise, we love how wonderfully radio accessible the song is. It doesn’t feel too safe, but it’s not too out of left field that it would be difficult for listeners to jump into. “Junk Of The Heart” has the makings of a potentially fun and stylish pop hit.

“Junk Of The Heart” shows off a melodic swagger that Polista displays beautifully. We absolutely love how easily accessible yet fresh this track sounds, and we hope to hear more.

The production's 90's garage feel is what really rounds the song into form.
Aside from a somewhat catchy hook, there's not nearly enough memorable moments on this track.
