Seattle psychedelic funk outfit Polyrhythmics shared a new single, “Roller.” The track is the band’s first new music since 2020.

“Roller” follows Polyrhythmics’ May 2020 album Man From The Future along with its accompanying December 2020 EP Fondue Party. Seattle writer Jacob Uitti described the fresh cut:

The newest single, “Roller,” from the Seattle-based funk collective, Polyrhythmics, is more like a daring film score than a debut track. Lead guitarist Ben Bloom zips a Ferrari down a narrow mountain road. Deep pocket bassist Jason Gray laughs as the guards take someone away during a poker game. The band’s horn section portends adventure in the 24-hour City of Sin. Drummer Grant Schroff jumps from building to building. It’s the sound of a Hollywood fairytale. It’s a tuxedo and a red rose. It’s hand-to-hand combat in the desert before the plane swoops overhead. It’s all this, set to music.
