Whimsical space pop psych artist Polartropica has recently released a new video for “Olympia.” The theme behind her new music is to make a magical make-believe world. See the video below:
The J-Pop song features dreamlike vocals with an upbeat message that will soon be a memorable electro-pop anthem for the masses. The video is thematically influenced by the movements for rights and equality during the presidential elections as well as the 2020 Tokyo Olympics trailer.
Polartropica is the music endeavor of Los Angeles based Ihui (eeway) Cherise Wu. Born in Taiwan yet raised in California, Wu combines pop melodies, futuristic synths and classical string arrangements, creating a genre of bubblegum psychedelia that is fit for intergalactic space travels. Wu created Polartropica as a place where things can exist where they don’t belong by fusing elements of complete opposites together with the outcome resulting in unique sounds that use both organic and synthetic instruments.
“I wanted to create a healing, inspiring and empowering space with just the right amount of disco-party!” Wu said. “I’m hoping to always make ethereal and beautiful music, the songs are generally lyrically sad and a little dark, but the music always has a sparkly sheen.”
Polartropica also pride themselves on giving back to the community, by pairing up with organizations such as Planned Parenthood and Youth Justice Coalition for live shows.
