Polica Biography - United Crushers Set For Release in March
Following the break-up of both a romantic and professional partnership with Alexei Casselle saw the end of folk rock duo Roma di Luna, Channy Leaneagh drafted ex-members of Ryan Olsen's Gayngs project in Chris Bierden, Drew Christopherson and Ben Ivascu to start a new group. Playing live across their home town of Minneapolis, they debuted singles 'Dark Star' and 'Lay Your Cards Out' before catching the attention of future touring partners Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon, who exclaimed "They're the best band I've ever heard" in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. Upon the release of their first full record, Give You The Ghost in 2012, critics were astounded by the newcomers, describing it as an emotional journey from defiance to loneliness and back again. Stylish and slick, the album proved equally powerful live, with Leaneagh using an array of effects to give her voice its atmospheric edge.
Continuing their relationship with Bon Iver, the band joined them on stage for a number of festivals throughout the summer along with starting work on their second studio album. Shulamith came out in 2013, preceded by a single featuring Vernon in 'Tiff'. Filled with drum, bass and synth, the album was a direct reference to the radical feminist Shulamith Firestone and explored topics such as the conflict of desire and living up to cultural ideals.
