CIMMfest & Thalia Hall present: Poliça / MOTHXR
Minneapolis-based, synth-pop/rock project Poliça was formed by producer Ryan Olson and vocalist Channy Leaneagh in 2011. In a live setting, the group is rounded out by bassist Chris Bierden, and percussionists Drew Christopherson and Ben Ivascu. Following the positive reception for their debut album Give You the Ghost and, its follow up, Shulamith (titled after the radical 20th century feminist Shulamith Firestone, whom Leaneagh calls her “muse”), Poliça will release its third full-length, United Crushers this spring. Opening the night is Brooklyn’s indie synth-rock quartet MOTHXR.
