Behind Polaroid Music

We’ve poured our hearts and souls into instant photography for over 80 years, giving anyone across the world the tools for self-expression and discovery. On September 21, 2022, we built on that vibe… by making something completely different. Here’s how Polaroid Music came to be.

In a way, it’s been in the mix for a while... We’ve had a dormant connection to music—a rumbling of what could be—for a long time.

“Polaroid has always been at its best at the intersection of art and science, making products that inspire and empower the creativity in all of us. We talked a lot about where we could go next, and music was the area that kept popping up through our history. First with a sketch from the ‘70s and then with my first experiment at The Impossible Project in 2012, trying to put music on a Polaroid photo. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work. But that desire to explore this world remained.”
— Oskar Smolokowski, our Chairman.

So, with the timing and progression feeling natural, we decided to enter the music space—but knew we had to do it the Polaroid way. The outcome: our own kind of music players.

On the players

Spearheaded by our design team in London, we created four analog music players that follow the same design philosophy that’s at the heart of everything we create: playful, colorful, tactile, and human.

“Our music players are fun, vibrant, and in shapes you can’t help but touch. Simple joys like flicking the analog dial to change stations or turn up the music is a small way to help us get back to our human experience and away from our phones. They even have a small display that moves with the music. We want them to feel alive.”
— Ignacio Germade, our Chief Design Officer.

The Polaroid P1 is small and portable, the Polaroid P2 is compact enough to wear, the Polaroid P3 takes you back with its ‘80s boombox vibe, and the Polaroid P4 packs some serious sound. And while each has their own distinct vibe, the sound quality across the board is in that sweet spot of warm, balanced, and hazy.

And through a super-easy-to-use Polaroid Music App and our music players link up.

When we hear music we love, we come alive. That’s our aim in creating Polaroid Music—to carry that energy over to how a speaker looks. The music we love should be played on something we love.

It’s been a wild journey. Exciting. Challenging. Daunting. And while it’s all new for us, there’s one thing that’ll never shift: we’ll never forget or lose the love for what got us to the dance.


“We are working hard on something new in the instant world too. An instant camera that can rival the titans of the ‘70s and ‘80s in terms of picture quality. A new camera for i-Type film that I've been dreaming of since 2016. OK can't tell you more but it's coming next year!”
— Oskar Smolokowski, our Chairman.

Yeah. We like the sound of that.
