Polartropica Releases New Song “TERMINATOR”
- Los Angeles-based electro-psych pop singer-songwriter Ihui Cherise Wu, aka Polartropica released a new song “TERMINATOR” on May 25, 2022.
The song was written during a soul crushing dark time during the quarantine amid personal turmoil and violence against AAPI community and seniors, the track is a goodbye letter to someone they loved.
The song is inspired by the 1991 film “Terminator 2” directed by James Cameron.
“Inspired by movie Terminator 2, my Taiwanese immigrant parents, artists Tylor Thrasher, Lauren YS, and co-director/writer of film SOUL Kemp Powers,” Ihui Cherise Wu said of the song, “The track will be released with a collection of moving sequences, TERMINATOR:DYNASTY in collaboration with photographer and video artist IZZO illustrating 6 WAYS TO DIE. It explores physical and psychological pain as a means of release and pleasure, perceived power dynamics, and the way our existence, humanity and worthiness lives on in everything we love and touch, and cannot be diminished to our accomplishments.”
She continued, “The track is dedicated to my family, fashion designer Peter Lai, AAPI community and diaspora, my sweet fans, and QTBIPOC+ artist platform and microgrant fund SQUIDTROPICA we run with Lauren YS.”
