Pollinator is proud to announce the release of their first single, Racehorse, accompanied by a music video. This is the first taste of the band's upcoming album Fruit.

About ‘Racehorse’:

What happens after the horse gets the carrot it’s been chasing for so long? This is a song about the struggle to find meaning and happiness in a repetitive lifestyle and/or a predictable relationship. The tale of the song punctuates itself with a refrain about winning and losing. Is it a celebration of the two sides of success or a lament about the banal? This is for the listener to decide.

About Fruit:

The second album in Pollinator’s repertoire, Fruit, is an aural epic. 17 tracks served up with honesty of performance and life. All the songs were recorded, mixed and mastered at Evert and Louise’s studio called The Backline. The album title aptly implies that the process of creation for the album was a cultivation. It was grown in the rich soil of personal experiences. There are themes in Fruit that speak of the ingredients for life: Chaos in order, order in chaos, facing adversity, complacence in comfort, love, death and the search for identity so it can be challenged. Fruit is a truthful representation of a three piece band giving their all. No sample replacement. No autotune. It's as organic as a modern market would allow. Fruit can be a vessel for the seed of inspiration or sustenance for a hungry soul. Out September 1st.




I'm a racehorse on his day off,
And I've been working so hard,
If I really had to give up,
I'd be working overtime,

I'm losing
I'm winning

Such an Easy way to win
But my desire's running thin,
i don't wanna go the distance,
Unless i turn myself around,

I'm losing
I'm winning

I'm winning
I'm losing
