The Hoy Polloy is an American band formed in 2012 by lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist K Sos and former lead guitarist Nick Romanelli in Miami, Florida. Their first album “On the Way to Rome” featured everything from blues to psychedelic rock, soulful ballads and some hip-hop. Their eclectic and unique sound gained the band a passionate fanbase. The group, which currently includes K Sos, keyboardist and bassist Frankie P., and drummer Dave Nordstrom, released their album “No Pressure” August of 2018. This is their first all Hip-Hop album and features two brand new songs as well as ten original hip hop songs the group previously recorded. “No Pressure” quickly caught the attention of some of music’s most discerning executives. The Miami-based band and lead singer K SOS have also opened for Ludacris, Redman, Method Man, Project Pat, GZA, and Mac Miller. The Hoy Polloy is currently on tour with Florida rapper Ace Hood for his 26-city sold out Trust The Process II: Undefeated Tour.
One of the standout tracks on “No Pressure” is the song “Oh Hey Love”. It begins with sonic, moody tones and ominous vocal melodies that bounce with the rhythm. The full sound kicks in to a tight and hard driving beat with psychedelic atmosphere and a solid groove. The vocals interchange between different catchy phrases and patterns that stylishly attach themselves to the beat from every possible angle. The sharp rap verses have the characteristics and attitude of classic hip-hop infused with emotive soul and mentally conscious lyrical content. The sound progressively grows and fills out as “Oh Hey Love” moves along with its moody swagger and dark undertones. They have the sensibility and accessories of hip-hop/trap music while instilling a presence of solid song writing and melodic structure that gives the track a deeper impact and meaning. It’s a blend of melancholy moods and funky style that gives this song its unique sound and extreme re-playability.
