Ever since debut single 'Dark Star', the fame of American band Poliça has ever been rising. The band is driven by the chilled out voice of singer Channy Leaneagh, in combination with a sound that hints towards nineties pop en a touch of R&B. De Standaard once compared their sound to 'the sensual artpop that's created by Joan As Police Woman and St.Vincent, Bon Iver's synth-driven americanapop, Kanye West's ironic showbizzhiphop, The XX's etheric city sounds and Warpaint's heavy postpunkrhytms. For their newest album 'Music for the Long Emergency', the band collaborated with s t a r g a z e, the berlin-based orchestral collective. The collaborating resulted in a fascinating album, that will certainly be presented at Sonic City.
