Today is a great day to share the news about Black Polish and their new single called “Streetsigns.” Black Polish is Jayden Nicole Binnix, and their sound transcends musical boundaries. They draw inspiration from bands like Paramore, Twenty One Pilots and Mitski, but their sound really needs to be heard to make your own judgement. ”‘Streetsigns’ speaks of wanting to escape your self destruction and be completely isolated free to do whatever you please,” Binnix explained. “It’s a love song for a place where responsibility doesn’t exist and guilt will never reside within you.” Black Polish will release their debut LP, Forest (Monsters Live In The Trees), via Riptide Music on January 26th. I was also able to catch up with this talented artist for a brief interview below.
As shown with the wide range of genres exhibited on your previous releases and this new one too, your forthcoming record is sure to display a diverse array of influences and sonic directions. What do you think has been the most pivotal influence that guided you during this LP’s creation? And how have you incorporated that influence into your craft?
Twenty One Pilots was definitely a huge influence for this album. They have such a way of world building through music and I knew I had to do my own. There’s an obvious earthy theme with this project and I plan to take all of my albums to different settings. If you listen closely, the lyrics tell a story and all the songs connect.
How would you best describe your new single “Streetsigns” on a musical basis, and what does the track mean to you on a deeper level?
”Streetsigns” speaks of wanting to escape your self destruction and be completely isolated free to do whatever you please. It’s a love song for a place where responsibility doesn’t exist and guilt will never reside within you.
With your music in general, what message do you hope to relay to listeners? And what key ideas do you hope listeners leave your new record with?
You have to feel everything in order to heal everything. Nothing can be solved by running and hiding. Love and forgive the worst version of yourself.
