A Japanese New Wave band out of Tokyo, Polysics describes its style as "technicolor pogo punk." It was named after a synthesizer, the Korg Polysix. Formed in 1997, the big break came at a '98 live concert in Tokyo. They became quickly recognized for their high energy, synth and computer generated sounds.
The first albums, "1st P" and "A.D.S.R.M." were released on an indie label. Signing with Ki/con Records in 2000 (a subsidiary of Sony), they released "Neu" in the U.S. in '04, and a greatest hits compilation, "Polysics Or Die." The '07 "Karate House" was released in Japan. Polysics appeared at the Rock in Japan Festival.
