Poliça & Stargaze

US electro quintet Poliça emerged in 2011 from a collaboration between producer Ryan Olson and singer Channy Leaneagh. They met in the Gayngs collective, of which also Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) was a member. Three albums were received enthusiastically, thanks to the band’s innovative sound and use of instruments (e.g. with two people on drums!). Together with indie-classical ensemble Stargaze, they wrote ‘Music For The Long Emergency’, the debut album to be launched in February and which they will also be performing at Cross-linx. The set will open with a completely personalised version of Steve Reich’s ‘Music For Pieces Of Wood’ and new compositions by US composer Daniel Wohl: fasten your seat belts, for a unique electro-acoustic journey!
