Hermitude Release Official Music Video For "OneFourThree (feat. Buddy & BJ The Chicago Kid); Full Album Details Shared       

 

The multi-instrumentalists and producer duo Hermitude share the full details of their upcoming album Pollyanarchy (out September 27 via Nettwerk Records/Elefant Traks).

The album’s name is a reflection on finding clarity in the chaos.  Pollyanarchy is a record of the time spent to meticulously sculpt, experiment and create a piece of work that skillfully blends a diverse assemblage of features like Vic Mensa, BJ The Chicago Kid, Buddy, Bibi Bourelly, Haiku Hands, Hoodlem, Wes Period, Soaky Sirens, Vory, and Electric Fields.  In and amongst the eleven tracks, Hermitude has yet again produced a future-facing album of coherence and variety that showcases a wide range of influences, from late-night R&B to deep pitched basslines and trap-inflected hooks.  The list of collaborations notes the distance in which their music has taken them, bending genres and bridging the gap between electronic music and hip-hop.

"What a blessing to connect with our idols and make a vocal focused record. This album has given us the opportunity to flex our production skills in a different environment where the instrumental doesn't tell the full story. Collaboration was the key to finding the sound we wanted for 'Pollyanarchy.'"

Last month, the hip-hop influenced electronic innovators dropped their latest track “OneFourThree,” featuring vocals from superstars Buddy and BJ The Chicago Kid.  A finger on the Dilla pulse, BJ The Chicago Kid croons with so much soul, while Buddy skillfully hits the verse.  Partnering with HipHopDX, Hermitude reunites with director Nathan Presley - who directed the official music video for previously released single "Every Day (feat. Hoodlem)" - to share the official music video for "OneFourThree."

To support the album, Hermitude head out on their biggest headline tour, with shows in Korea, China, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, USA, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.  While in the states they will be doing several music festivals, including Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas, alongside Chance The Rapper, Post Malone and Vampire Weekend.
