FJORDS - Cardiff’s finest purveyors of Indie-Electronica release the much anticipated new track ‘Polymath’ on 1st March 2014 via Crookedman Records.

Recorded at the world famous Monnow Valley studios FJORD’s third release builds on the sonic ambition of previous singles Domino and Russian Doll. ‘Polymath’ showcases an icy sonic template reminiscent of Movement era New Order & Bowie’s Low, coupled with angular guitar riffs that recall the finesse of A Certain Ratio, Franz Ferdinand & Arcade Fire.
