Poliça >> will be hitting nearly all points of California this week including special performances at Coachella on Friday of both weekends. But if you are 1 of the many unfortunate not able to attend the festival in Indio then hit up their show in San Francisco at Mezzanine this Saturday night.
It's a beautiful thing when superb synths meet soulful vocals and that's what Poliça brings in its artistry. Their debut album Give You The Ghost is really a gem and a prime example of how this sub-sound has evolved in recent years. According to Rolling Stone following the album's release, Poliça is the best band Justin Vernon has ever heard and that's saying a lot coming from a such a powerful band in Bon Iver.
They've released videos for 'Amongster' and 'Lay Your Cards Out' which are certainly 2 of the album's strongest tracks but I really like 'Wandering Star' the best. They remind me of a young Yeah Yeah Yeahs mixed with Blonde Redhead and Poliça is just getting started. SXSW and ACL appearances helped spread the Poliça buzz last year and this year is already proving to be bigger whilst on their current tour and on the Coachella lineup.
So get out to the Mezzanine this weekend and check out Poliça. This is one of my favorite spots in the city and you can't go wrong getting out this awesome band.
