Polarity opens with “Meteor Ride”, a five-minute voyage through low-end bass with ethereal synthesizer melodies that skip and plink around almost as if listeners are sailing through space on the surface of a beautiful falling star.
Segueing into “Creature”, a collaboration with Shlump, this second track on this EP picks up tempo and harnesses a heavier vibe, certainly a headbanger-worthy track.
“Paranoid” with Bleep Bloop embodies the freeform bass movement with different segments of the song switching from experimental to full-on bass bombs.
“Gunslinger Pt. II feat. Pistol” was the first single released from this EP and it follows a similar tone as the previous track, experimental yet heavy.
“Mind Over Matter” is the fifth track on the EP. Rounding out just over five minutes long, Liquid Stranger takes a slightly more down-tempo approach to this song. However, after the midsong sample from someone seemingly in outer space, fans are greeted with an experimental breakdown that will dizzy the minds of all who listen.
Completing the EP is “Saturn Cruiser”, a collaboration with Freddy Todd. This track possesses elements of downtempo dub along with a much more mellow melody that coalesces as the song finally reaches a peaceful finish.
