They've been shared on some Facebook groups I'm part of in the last week or so. They seem pretty cool.

I wonder if they'll have a show I can see while I'm in Japan next month....

Wow, great find!  Love that they're funky. 

After listening to all the videos in this post I immediately bought what they had to offer on Amazon Music. 

Thank you, @astoriasky.

That acoustic bit of Telecaster Stripe was sweet.
It would be lovely if they did a full recording of that unplugged and threw it on a future release Happy

She said she lived in the UK for a year? That explains a bit why there's more than the usual amount of eigo in their songs.

...and per their website, a new EP drops on November 9th.

They're definitely a fun little band. They embrace some jazzy elements and embrace a bit of quirkiness without going overboard with it.

They're the kind of band I could envision being on the radio at the local hipster coffee bar. (And I mean that in a non-ironic, positive way.)

Update, hence not editing my prior post:

Polkadot Stingray's newest video, Mermaid, has already hit 500K views in just a month and a half since it's release.
