Dark horses of the Leeds independent scene, few bands are as quiet in their own confidence as Polo.

Kat, Luke and Dan made waves with their debut EP ‘Alice’ back in 2015 and have trademarked their minimalistic, cool and synth-heavy sound ever since. Headlining the likes of Humber Street Sesh and playing to audiences in Germany and Poland, the trio have proved time and time again that actions speak ‘Louder than Words.’  

Polo quickly rose to independent royalty after signing with Tipping Point in 2018. They spent the latter part of the last decade gracing the Northern festival scene, bringing their heavenly unique mix of R’n’B and electro to Hit the North, The Great Escape and Live at Leeds. 

2020 shows no signs of slowing down for Polo – they’ve opened the show with the eye opening ode to the environment ‘Witch Hunt’, and have set the stage for the year to be theirs.
