Poliça near the end of their North American tour for their third album, Ultimate Crushers.

The Minneapolis band is comprised of Chris BierdenDrew ChristophersonBen Ivascu, and Channy Leaneagh.

According to thisispolica.com, “United Crushers was born out of the longest break from touring in POLIÇA’s history. The group originally emerged from Minneapolis in 2011 when Ryan Olson, GAYNGS leader, producer and Minneapolis’ master of curation, began collaborating with Leaneagh on a batch of synthesizer and percussion-heavy arrangements he had lying around. The resulting debut, 2012’s Give You The Ghost, immediately garnered international acclaim, with Rolling Stone hailing it as ‘the sound of heartbreak and celebration happening simultaneously’ and Q praising it as ‘a bewitching, urgent, magical debut.'”

The band released their follow-up, Shulamith, in the fall of 2013. EW called that album “propulsive enough for dance floors, and dreamy enough for headphones” and MOJO said it “proves that intelligent pop music still has the ability to seduce and enthrall.”
