10 Best Polica Songs

Polica is a new Minneapolis based indie rock band best described as what could be the very best of “electric reality.” Consisting of Channy Leaneagh on vocals, Chris Bierden on bass, Drew Christopherson on drums and programming, and Ben Ivascu on drums, the band has quickly gained attention as an Internet sensation since its online debut in August of 2011.

Stirring at a primitive level, soulfully haunting, and stark in its truthful complexity, Polica’s ingenuity and sound are like rare and pure treasure. Here are the 10 Best Polica Songs:

1. Wandering Star


2. I See My Mother


3. Lay Your Cards Out


4. The Dark Star


5. The Maker


6. Happy Be Fine


7. Form


8. Fist, Teeth, Money


9. Violent Games


10. Amongster


Backed by producers Ryan Olsen of Gayngs and Jim Eno of Spoon, Polica recorded its first album, entitled “Polica,” before offering live performances. Following its first live venue on September 4, 2011 at Nick and Eddies in Minneapolis, Polica went on to open for the New York based Clap Your Hands Say Yeah in a sold out show and played other locations along the East Coast. Despite its relative infancy in the music industry, the band has received praise from some of the best - like Rolling Stone who stated the band captures “the sound of heartbreak and celebration happening simultaneously” and and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon who declared “They’re the best band I’ve ever heard.”
