XO (Polar Music)
By: Alex Steininger
Poleposition's XO EP is a late-night pop record that, though not lounge, carries a smoky, lounge vibe in its dark, intricate layers, mostly due to the front man's sensual, mysterious voice, which leads the songs down one dark alley after another. You can't help but be reeled in with curiosity, his voice alluring, while the background music sparkles, with you walking towards it, even though you're not sure what is around the corner. Its that mystery that fuels Poleposition and XO, and once you walk into its trap, and it wraps around you like a blanket, its indie-rock structure will consume you and make you a fan. I'll give it a B.
