Because of being easily understandable, it’s very suitable for both professionals and novice users. “Full Screen” layout stands out among a bunch of demo options with its cool homepage. It’s a nice detail that we see the menu items vertically, like they are sound waves. By the way, we must add that it’s pretty easy with Kayo to create rich content pages. On the demo site, the pages such as Blog, Shop and About Me look pure and focused on the purpose. Markers like “Sold Out” and “Cancelled” on event pages are quite creative and go along with the concept.

That is to say, the creators have considered all of the elements of music while developing Kentha.
Let’s talk about the biggest difference from the competitors. Thanks to the mp3 player sticked to the bottom of the page, you can listen to music even in page transitions. Non-stop!

But behind this view, you find a theme which you can create pure and modern websites. When you inspect the post and layout alternatives, you’ll be convinced. We recommend you to use fullscreen images on your homepage to catch the best view. Moreover, one of the homepage options supports fullscreen videos. For a striking entrance, why not?
Glytch comes with various interfaces for sections like “Discography”, “Videos” and “Tours”. Besides, you can use a bunch of elements including “Album Disc”, “Band Members”, “Events” and “Playlist”. Keep in mind that you don’t need any coding knowledge to use them!

And WooCommerce compatibility connects you to your fans, by letting you provide special stuff and albums to be bought. It’s an important bond between a musician and his audience.
Now throw the color mess aside that you see in the most of the music WordPress themes. And enjoy the cool and calmness air of Polyphonic.

Furthermore, you can add a Spotify playlist to your pages thanks to lots of shortcodes that Polyphonic includes!
