Dream-pop artist Polartropica bounces back from a headline show with an otherworldly new single “WHAT’S YOUR FANTASY”, alongside darkly beautiful visuals.
Polartropica is a Los-Angeles based artist with a knack for creating the unusual. Making music since 2016, throughout the years the artist has crafted her authentic soundscape of electronic-pop. With each release sounding different to the next, Polartropica is back with a brand-new single “WHAT’S YOUR FANTASY” following the release of her collaborative remixed cut “Terminator Redux (Zhao Remix)”.
Having most recently supported alt-pop artist Poppy at Novo in Los Angeles, the artist’s latest single comes hot off the wheels of her headline show at Hollywood’s famed Troubadour venue. Out via Coconut Spaceship Records, this new release sees Polartropica completely embody her intergalactic aesthetic. Among her musical creations, Polartropica co-hosts ‘Squidtropica’ a safe creative space that offers microgrants, and resources and showcases art for and by QTBIPOC.
Collaborating with high-profile director Vanessa Mazaroli, they took influence from vintage Hong Kong and Chinese fashion alongside paying tribute to the extravagant legacy of the queer and trans community in LA. The “WHAT’S YOUR FANTASY” video puts a twist on Alice in Wonderland, featuring vintage Hong Kong and Chinese Opera headdress, costume pieces and set design from culture and fashion icon, designer Peter Lai’s personal collection.
