Michael Fay’s (aka Pollution Salute) music get’s born on other younger, kinder planets. it remains mysterious to even Fay how they travel and why he hears them. He however proves himself to be a proper ambassador and loving host for these alien and somehow familiar melodies. Like the eager, wise child in the Little Prince he tends a hothouse of raw and delicate sound orchids because these songs are too shiny and ephemeral to be ignored or go unloved. Feel free to imagine him as a tattooed sunflower. He lives in Kansas City, Missouri where he enjoys finger painting with the elderly.
Fay’s musical talent joins the inner circle of the Tribe, releasing his sparkling debut album Neon. A sound delivered through familiar and inviting pop structures gathering in the subtle warmth of Fay’s wide open organic spaces. Crisp rhythms skitter and drive as innocent cascading melodies collide and absorb into one another. The Neon album was immediately followed by the companion Gum Drums album, a far more ambient experience. Pollution Salute is a dose of high caliber sunshine for the brain. We’ll leave it there, and prescribe an immediate listen!
