Pure, Unadulterated Indie Rock on Polymer's "Avery South"

Pure, Unadulterated Indie Rock on Polymer's "Avery South"

True indie rock, with the focus on the rock, isn't as common in 2016 as it once was, but local band Polymer has been bucking that trend for the past few years with their brand of music that's all guitars, drums, vocals and little else. To some synth lovers, that description might sound negative, but we at The Deli think there's something to be said for a band that cuts itself down to the barest essentials needed and comes out of the studio with a finely prepared track. "Avery South" is fun and fast in the strumming, pure slacker in the vocals and lyrics, and has that good janglefuzz from your favorite 90s/2000s indie bands that you still jam all the time; in other words, it's good stuff for anyone into indie rock. Listen below, rockists of the hill country.
