Song of the Day: October – Polar Caps

Today song is the super smooth October by London singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and producer Owen Hughes-Holland aka POLAR CAPS. The single is coming his second EP, Altitudes released 3 November.

In an over saturated and fickle market, it’s a relentlessly tough job to be original in a specific genre and stay on top of the game these days. However POLAR CAPS  is definitely pushing the boundaries with his unique style of alternative electro acoustic pop.

Since launching in the summer of 2011, POLAR CAPS has already made a visible impact on the underground scene, with the successful release of his debut EP ‘Solutions‘. The EP received critical acclaim and tracks from the EP have featured in numerous TV shows .

This led to POLAR CAPS sharing the stage with the likes of EXAMPLE, THE CRIBS,  ALUNAGEORGE,  JAKE BUGG and DJ FRESH, featuring on NME.com, and MTV, having celebrities such as STACEY SOLOMAN & ALEX ZANE tweet about him. Now with the recent release of his second EP , it seems the future is most definitely looking bright for this young upstart.
