Poliça Bring New Music to Sold-Out Warsaw on Saturday Night

April 25th, 2016

Poliça – Warsaw – April 23, 2016

Poliça – Warsaw – April 23, 2016
A lot can change in a year. For Channy Leaneagh and Ryan Olson of Poliça, change came both personally and professionally. Last year the couple welcomed their first child while they worked on their third studio album, United Crushers. With parenthood came matured lyrics tackling some darker subjects, from drugs to police brutality, which paint a rather bleak outlook for a newborn child. This week’s news of Prince’s passing hit the proud Minnesotan band especially close to home. From birth to death, the themes all converged on Saturday evening at a sold-out Warsaw

Drenched in heavy Auto-Tune rendering Leaneagh to a low baritone, the quartet opened with “Summer Please” and followed with more from their latest, including “Lime Habit” and “Someway.” The artwork from United Crushers provided the backdrop, while lighting was at a minimum with the exception of glowing floor lights leaving members illuminated like neon figures. Leaneagh mentioned how nice it was to play Warsaw as they are often mistaken for a Polish band. Also, who doesn’t love having a few pierogies during a show?

The exuberant crowd lit up as the jangling synths gave way to fave “Chain My Name.” The recently blonde Leaneagh weaved her hands and swayed to the basslines and multiple drumbeats—the band’s got not one but two drummers, Drew Christopherson and Ben Ivascu. On probably the most-mellow track, “Lately,” Leaneagh’s vocal sounded particularly ethereal and melodic. But don’t let that soft spot fool you: She proceeded to head-bang during her rendition of “Berlin” and crooned with conviction against the heavy basslines provided by Chris Bierden. An encore of “Baby Sucks” and “Amongster” happily sent off fans into the night as reverberations of the evening lingered. —Sharlene Chiu
