As their oxymoronic name suggests, Bad Pollyanna represents a mix of both beauty and darkness. The band explores and celebrates the duality of love, sex and the human condition through music and art.
Their debut album “Monstrous Child” takes us on the journey of a young woman kidnapped by a grieving scientist who uses her to resurrect his deceased lover in the form of a doll – with disastrous consequences. Having being transformed into a monster, she sets out on a journey to discover the meaning of love, life and the sweet yet bitter taste of revenge.
Bad Pollyanna believe that you should be whoever you want to be rather than what someone else or indeed society in general thinks you should be. They are proudly sponsored by cult make-up brand Illamasqua , with whom they have released the first ever official charity single “Invincible Girl” for the incredible Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
