Polar Waves

Flashback to an idyllic formative moment: Polar Waves singer-songwriter Julio Duran is home in Chile during a cold snap. The country is in the grip of a polar vortex, but he’s indoors staying warm with his buddies and some booze. His wanderlust to break out of a safe existence is hibernating and he’s in the moment. It’s a short-lived time of serenity before Julio heeds the call of his soul to bravely venture into an unknown future, in an unfamiliar country. In 2017 Julio shared his journey with Polar Waves’ debut album, No One Needs Help Anymore, a visceral collection of unguarded emotionality and blood raw rock n’ roll produced by modern rock legend John Keane (R.E.M./Widespread Panic). “It’s been quite a trip for me since I came to this country about 10 years ago,” the Athens Georgia-based artist says. “I moved across the country, searching, and always being on the run. Along the way, I would meet people and they would seem all set, like they didn’t need any help. But I could feel their dismay and dissatisfaction. This album is a voice for those who don’t want to be followers. It’s their story and my own story. It’s a therapeutic record.”
In 2018, Polar Waves unveiled a fresh lineup featuring Casey Long (drums) and Brenden Robertson (bass).
