Skating Polly belong in a tradition of Pacific North West bands that borrow from the punk ethos - but unlike many of their contemporaries they avoid leaning too heavily into the history books.

However, at the center of the songs are melodic hooks, and tunes which settle like earworms on absinthe. Independently minded, fiercely honest and raw as hell Skating Polly have returned with a new EP, and it's called "New Trick"
Having toured as guests with Babes in Toyland, and won a reputation for a live show that extracts emotional content from any crowd, Skating Polly have a trajectory that seems set on high and long. ARTISTdirect caught up with Kelli and Peyton from the band to discuss the strengths and sentiments of the new EP, and to learn just what effect Hall and Oates can have on a person.
