Poliça Play Webster Hall Tomorrow Night

October 5th, 2012

Minneapolis’s Poliça, a psychedelic R&B offshoot of Gayngs, began when singer Channy Leanagh and producer Ryan Olson began collaborating together in the summer of 2011. Things clicked, and within a month the two already had enough material to begin recording. So they recruited bassist Chris Bierdan and drummers Drew Christopherson and Ben Ivascu, and cut Give You the Ghost, which came out this past Valentine’s Day. How was the album received? Well, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon says, “They’re the best band I’ve ever heard.” And you can hear them in person when Poliça (above, doing “Dark Star” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!) play Webster Hall tomorrow night.
