Polica debuted in 2012 with their wonderfully haunting album Give You The Ghost, which was an instant synthpop success. Their drum and bass sounds have earned them international acclaim in the time since, and the band has been touring with popular acts, such as The xx. Coming up on the heels of their second album Shulamith, their recent tour features the band’s signature electrifying mix of R&B and goth pop. In contradiction to their sometimes quiet and ethereal albums, their live shows offer a jolt of power and beauty that lights up the stage. The duo has a fierce dynamic that exudes intensity, and ticket holders get the chance to witness the kinetic energy between them. Shulamith, their October 2013 album, stole the No. 1 spot on the U.S. Heatseekers Albums chart. The band hails from Minneapolis, a northern U.S. city that seems to be a petri dish for the kind of tense and melancholy music that Polica has perfected. Both musicians in Polica were working on other projects when they met, and over time, they morphed into their current manifestation. The band sparkles in the studio, as well as in concert. Their new album Shulamith has received as much praise and attention as their first album and songs, like the Portishead-esque “Wandering Star,” keep roping in more and more fans. Polica is Polish for "policy," which lead singer Channy Leaneagh claims is the unwritten code that guides the band as they play together. Once you’ve seen them in concert, you’ll know exactly what she’s talking about.
