live is to be enveloped in an overpowering wall of sound. Whether it's front woman Channy Leaneagh's overpowering vocals, the two drummers, the icy synth, or the funky bass of Chris Bierden, Poliça's music is a texture-fueled wonderland, and in the coming days, we'll be premiering an exclusive private soundcheck (alongside a video interview) that we shot with Poliça at the Music Hall of Williamsburg before they played a sold out show later that night. And in Channy's own words, "I personally get really aggravated, in a positive way, just by the amount of sound coming out of our band." We got some spectacular footage of the band playing new tracks from their Raw Exit EP
which are also featured on the deluxe edition of last year's stellar record, Shulamith
. So, if you've ever wanted to know why so many people have fallen in love with Poliça, here's a quick peek of what we have in store for you.
