Inexorable beats and looming heartache fill the songs of Polica' – The New York Times'
In one of the most unique origin stories of the past decade, folk singer Channy Leaneagh ended a band and relationship, began collaborating with producer Ryan Olson (Gayngs), and formed a breakthrough group comprising autotune vocals, bass and two live drummers for what Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon described as 'the best band I've ever heard'. Inspired to rebel against pop music and the way women are portrayed across three albums, Poliça follow their sold out Sydney debut with a fiery performance at Vivid LIVE in the Joan Sutherland Theatre.
Exploding with physical intensity and Leaneagh's escapist dancing, Poliça reimagine drum 'n' bass, hip-hop and synth-pop into a form that is readymade for the stage. Bringing her vocals further to the fore with their third album United Crushers, the Minneapolis band have stepped even further into chart-ready production with the Phil Collins-like thrust of new single 'Lime Habit'.
Creating an uplifting ode to the historic turmoil of their hometown Minneapolis on United Crushers, Poliça now join their Midwestern contemporaries in Bon Iver at Vivid LIVE – celebrating a firestorm brand of indie rock where live electronics and band-driven groove meld to overwhelming effect.
