Little Bark

Day 20 of PopLib’s May Month of Madness Marathon for NZ Music Month goes into heavy synth-pop overdrive with Little Bark’s “Poly”

“Poly” comes from the recent album “USB” from Little Bark. USB in this case represents ‘Unique Sonic Broadcast’, although it is fittingly available on a USB drive as well as LP and CD formats. The rapid vibrato/ tremolo on the voice is just enough to give this lush big tune a hint of unsettling more-android-than-human appeal.

I had a synth once called Poly. Well, it was called Poly-800 but those numbers seemed so impersonal so it was just Poly to me. I sold Poly to Demarnia Lloyd of Cloudboy in 1996. I’m sure Poly had a much better and more creative life with Demarnia than it would ever have with me. But I do sometimes miss Poly…
