Polica @ BV-CMJ (more by Amanda Hatfield)

"Last summer, Ryan Olson and Channy Casselle - whose previous collaboration, Gayngs' 2010 LP Relayted, was a mesmerizing slab of cheesed-out neo-soul that featured Bon Iver - wrote Give You The Ghost in only a month's time. Quickly, a band was assembled and sent into the studio, fully fleshing out the forlorn, ruminative R&B experiment, and Give You the Ghost was born." [Rolling Stone]
Speaking of Minneapolis, Polica, whose auto-tune filled debut album Give You the Ghost is out this week (stream on Spotify), has added a third NYC show to their upcoming tour that already included shows at Rock Shop (March 27) and Mercury Lounge (March 28). The new date is April 1st @ Brooklyn Bowl, and it goes on sale Friday at noon. Rock Shop tickets are also still available. Mercury Lounge is sold out.

Polica are also the latest addition to the Sasquatch Festival which takes place in Washington in May. "We're happy to announce two new additions to this year's lineup: Poli├ža will be on the Bigfoot Stage on Friday, May 25th! And comedien Chelsea Peretti will be in the Banana Shack on Monday, May 28th."
