Along with Trampled by Turtles and Doomtree, locally affiliated Polica battled the heat and dust to perform before a huge crowd at Lollapalooza last weekend. The road ahead boasts more wide exposure as the group gears up for next week's re-release of Give You the Ghost via new label Mom + Pop -- as well as the companion remix EP, Dark Star.
After Polica hit Late Night With Jimmy Fallon back in April, another evening television program has decided to host later this month.
Catch them performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live on August 22.
And, as part of being Vogue's "Band of the Week" there's more material from the EP -- after teasing Gardens & Villa's remake of "The Maker" last week. A fresh version of "Amongster" shows the depths of darkness that the song can reach in Exitmusic's capable hands.
Although much of the Vogue article introducing the song reinforces what Gimme Noise has told you about the band in great detail, there's a bit about the future of Polica tacked on at the end.
We're told we can expect a follow-up to Give You the Ghost sometime next year.
"I'm excited about putting my violin through some of my pedals," [Channy Leaneagh] says of the instrument she has abandoned in recent years, but which she hopes will be featured prominently on the next album. "I'm a huge Arthur Russell fan and have been listening to that affected cello sound a lot recently."
Gimme Noise is a huge Arthur Russell fan, as well. Imagine adding these sorts of textures into the mix.
Polica performs with Supreme Cuts and Zoo Animal at the Cabooze's outdoor plaza on Saturday, August 11. Tickets cost $25. Click here.
