Why my Top 10
I can easily explain my choice of top 10 tracks. These are simply songs that moved me deeply, that changed something about the way I think about music and the way I write my music. I’m a big sucker for electronic sounds and haunting vocals. I appreciate the lyrics that are poetic and leave room for interpretation ( Paradise Circus, Cocorosie) but also it’s good and refreshing to hear a song that is very honest and tells a touching story in simple words ( Bullets, Innocente) . These songs are stuck in my mind forever.
I am a London-based polish singer/songwriter discovered by the legendary top selling UK producer Robin Millar, the man behind the success of SADE, Patricia Kaas, Ive Mendes and Everything But the Girl.
Robin says, “Pola approached me via my website two years ago with a dream and a bunch of very simple little demos. At first I was not sure there was anything to be done.
Then three things happened. First, I heard something in the voice that made me know that if a lot of people heard that voice they would love it. You’re either born with that or you aren’t. Boy George had it, Sade had it, Tracey Thorn had it…and Pola had it’.
POLA’s debut album ‘My Favourite Town’ has been produced by Robin and Ned Bigham and released in 2010.
