To listen to POLI is to listen to an artist who has never been defined by a single style or association.
POLI, both a shorthand nickname and a twist on the Greek prefix “poly”, is the artist name for Polina Zizak, and the perfect description of her music: mutli-faceted, many-sided, not one thing, but several.
Her sound is a refreshing blend of pop, modern r&b and jazz with elements of electronic dance music. Sensual, imaginative melodies dance around funky, futuristic beats and basslines as she touches on themes of self-discovery, life’s nuances, and relationships, embodying the journey of a young creative woman finding her way in the modern world.
The daughter of musical parents, she grew up on jazz, motown and soul, and began singing at a young age. She won fans as a semi-finalist on the popular show The Voice in her native Moscow, then touring globally participating in festivals and competitions, and studying performance and production in Spain before making the move to Los Angeles, CA.
Since then, POLI has been developing her signature sound, partnering with producer AJAE and other creative peers to bring life to her new artistic direction. Her new music video “On The Line” is out now.
