Black Polish (LGBT/BIPOC/LA ALT POP) “Birthwright” Video

Jayden Nicole Binnix (they/them), professionally known as Black Polish, is sharing the video for “birthwright”, from their recently released debut album, Forest (Monsters Live In The Trees), via Riptide Music. Having embarked on their musical journey at the age of 13, Binnix drew inspiration from a diverse array of artists including Fleetwood Mac, Mitski, Lord Huron, Lorde, and Twenty One Pilots. The alt/indie artist, now 18 years old, finally shared their long-awaited debut album earlier this year.

Identifying as a member of both the BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities, Black Polish brings a unique perspective to their interpretation of the world, and this can be seen on their debut record. Their presence in these spheres is marked by a powerful assertion of identity, and they ardently champion mental health awareness while maintaining a heightened sensitivity towards other marginalized groups. This rich tapestry of life experiences continues to inform Black Polish’s art and music. With over 10 Million streams across platforms and a number of live accolades (including gigs alongside The Midnight and Hemlocke Springs; performances at Echo Park RisingMakeOutMusic, and We Found New Music, and more), Black Polish is on the rise.

As Binnix wrote on their brand new LP and its creative origins:

“This album was created while I was living in Maryland and beginning high school. My family home was secluded and tucked away within the suffocating trees. It was my first major project I had ever worked on and I was only 15. Within this time, the unexpected Pandemic hit. Days blended together, as  deep isolation set in. I felt as if I saw the world in 3rd person. Seclusion in my room became my existence.

Though quarantine laws were lifted after a year, breaking from the shackles of depression and dissociation would simply not be possible. With every bad day, therapy session, or panic attack, I always ended my week with writing a song. Collabing with incredible writers such as Maia Kelly, Gabe Reali, and Taylor Jamison along with talented producer Ryan Raines and Alex Tirheimer, has made the process that more special. There’s hundreds of melodies I have scrapped. These are simply the ones I have kept.

Forest is not a place, it’s a state of mind. A state of mind where I am constantly looping back with no knowledge of escape. One thing about the woods is if you don’t remember how you got in, the chances of getting out are slim.”

The full-length debut LP from Black Polish, Forest (Monsters Live In The Trees), is out now via Riptide Music. Stay tuned for more from Black Polish, coming soon.
