Polar Beyond take to the rooftops this week. Their track “Suns” is one of the loveliest things I’ve heard for a long time – it’s nearly anthemic – and they have the making of an anthem in them. All they need is a little push – so we gave it to them
So where else is better to take the band than the roof of Belfast’s most famous building – the totemic Europa Hotel – still standing after all that nasty violence. And here Polar Beyond came alive. Standing on that rooftop overlooking the wee city turn to twilight, I all of a sudden came over all emotional.
The mood was hardly even ruined by the small point that we had to all sign death wavers before being allowed up there.
