Poliça - “Chain My Name” (free MP3)

Sound it Out # 59: Poliça  - “Chain My Name” (free MP3)

On their second album, Shulamith, Minnesota’s Poliça bring a more aggressive sound to their languid, sexy music. Channy Leanagh’s vocals are the ghostly anchor to a dense electronica palette.

The new album is out on October 22 in the US, and right around there in other territories. It’s terrific.

“Chain My Name” is poppier than I would have ever expected Poliça to be. The driving bassline and prominent handclaps are perky foils to the band’s usual dark and moody tone. Download it below.
