Today’s song is “Pixie” by Pollyanna. This song is off the NJ band’s latest album Slime out now via I Surrender Records.

Pollyanna is a four-piece band hailing from New Jersey. They are comprised of Jill Beckett (lead vocals/guitar), Daniel McCool (percussion), Brandon Bolton (bass), and Jack Rose (guitar).

After meeting in the first grade, Dan and Jill started the band at just 13 years old, eager to create and play music that would reach audiences beyond the confines of Jill’s open garage doors. Brandon made them a trio in early 2019, bringing 90’s femme punk influence to the group.

At the start of 2021, Jack completed the band’s lineup, adding his elemental stabby guitars and love for shoegaze and metal into the mix.

The band takes its name from the dictionary definition meaning, “to be unreasonably or illogically optimistic.” A perfect complement to front-person Jill Beckett’s ‘stuck in 2017’ incredibly optimistic attitude.

Pollyanna’s music packs a punch with their in-your-face punk rock. The song blends gritty distorted vocals with satiable power-pop for a melding of undeniably good sounds.

The band will be hitting the road with Forever Came Calling this month. They are kicking off the tour with an album release show this Friday, July 8th at the House of Independents in Asbury Park, NJ with Late Waves, Jhariah, Fox Teeth, and Range Life. See the rest of their tour dates below.
