Polestar makes electronica: Grew up listening to all kinds of music, but is most influenced by Kraftwerk, Electro, Wendy Carlos, Cabaret Voltaire and the BBC radiophonic workshop. Polestar is obsessed with complicated beats and beautiful sounds. The music can best be described as melodic electronica; fusing together complex beat patterns with warm and atmospheric synthesizer tones, along with all kinds of self made and self recorded sounds. Polestar is the 2005 Illinois-based, power-pop solo project. Although the band has not released an official album, Polestar has slowly churned out singles and demos, released on the band's Myspace. These singles include "Don't Say It's Over" (released December 16, 2006) "Smile" (released July 3, 2008) and "You're Such A Drag" (released January 1, 2009).

On November 9, 2010, an EP was uploaded to Bandcamp titled "It's Not Funny - The EP!" featuring all of the singles, plus previously unreleased material. On December 21, 2010, a re-edited version of "Smile" was released and was featured on the AllThingsWeezer "Boardie Originals Compilation," released on December 24. Read more on Last.fm.
