Polartropica has today released her new video for the track titled ‘Give Them Hell (Serial Killer Slayer)’.Drenched in that quasi-original style of dance-gamer and hyper-creative, Polartropica has not only found that sound but kicked in the balls to get it exactly the way she wants it. This is a video and track you will enjoy. Not only for the coolness of the visuals but the catchiness of the song. A perfect marriage of said sound and style. Whether or not you think Polartropica is a hitmaker or not, you can’t argue that she is a consistent fanmaker.

“An underground fight club made up of queer superheroes competing to see who will be crowned to take on the serial killer. Any and all skills and hobbies come into play, including fruits for the Tropical Fruit Ninja, or Neon Matcha’s plant power-up for example. Their powerful backstories give a glimpse into how they’ve turned into the fighters they are today. Who will win?”.
Polartropica is the music endeavor of Los Angeles based, dreamy space-pop artist, Ihui (eeway) Cherise Wu. Born in Taiwan yet raised in California, Wu has created a fantastical dreamland, successfully combining quirky pop melodies, futuristic synths and classical string arrangements, resulting in a genre of ethereal fantasy dream rock that you’ve never heard before.
Polartropica fuses elements of complete opposites together with the outcome resulting in a unique, ethereal sound that defies all sonic worlds. Using both organic and synthetic instruments, Wu conceived a visionary dream world for listeners to escape to. Wu professes, “I wanted to create a healing, inspiring and empowering space with just the right amount of disco-party!”
Her debut album, Dreams Come True, perfectly encapsulates Polartropica’s entire ethos, creating a soundtrack to her very own magical intergalactic space. Wu shares, “I get to play and work with some of the most incredibly wonderful people in the entire universe, and we always try to have as much fun as possible.” Sonically the album is a delicious concoction of dreamy synth rock, fueled by stories of people, animals, world news and Wu’s experiences as a queer Asian-American living in California.
Her single “Serial Killer Slayer- Give Them Hell” is about brave people who fight back when faced with kidnappers, serial killers, and predators. The infectious and bold track fuses pop punk, garage rock and electropop for an empowering anthem of self defense.
Written with the intention to allow listeners to let their imagination run wild, Wu hopes her music creates little escapes from reality for anyone that is looking for a mini vacation. Having been crowned LA Weekly’s ‘Best Indie Pop Band of 2019’, as well as landing acclaim from the likes of Billboard, NYLON and LADYGUNN, among others, Polartropica is an artist to watch.
