Forging a solid reputation on the Bristol circuit since 2017 as Monocle, the ceaselessly evolving partnership of Nathan Smith (guitar) and Jeff Ingle (drums) bring you POLEMICS, a band that has gained notable attention and acclaim for its distinctive heavy fusion and ferocious live shows.

Boasting an inspiration across the full spectrum of rock’s broad influence, fans on the fringes of any Punk, Hardcore or Metal movement will find catharsis from POLEMICS’ colourful and unpredictable energy and performance.

Listing their influences the band mentions: “heavy bands, lush bands, kind people, forward thinkers, our mates and David Lynch”


They released a single as Monocle on Beatbuzz Records last year before finally finding their way with Polemics. Beatbuzz Records patiently waited as they knew they were up to something good and now the label is finally ready to share this eclectic duo’s music!

Check out their Youtube Channel with tons of rehearsal videos.

Polemics will release their debut single on Beatbuzz Records soon.
