Despite the slow, twisting, syth looping style of Polica, the group's album came together in only a few recording sessions.  Recovering from the breakup of her folk rock band Roma di Luna and the breakup of her marriage to band mate Alexei Casselle, Channy Leaneagh turned to friend and collaborator Ryan Olson, founder of Gayngs. 

Honorary Artist to Watch in July 2012, Polica no doubt captured the hearts of XPN listeners with their eclectic mix of media. Channy Leaneagh's heavily manipulated and psychedelic voice booming through the SBC speakers for this year's festival will shoot the audience into outer space for a stellar performance.
Minneapolis' Polica played SXSW in March. Urgent, original and genre defying, Polica are absolutely essential in 2012. Their debut album, Give You The Ghost was an XPN Featured Album of the Week earlier this year.

They may qualify as newcomers, but the Minneapolis band Polica has already captured some keen ears as interest intensifies surrounding their first album, Give You The Ghost. An official release of their debut is slated for Valentine’s Day, yet their songs have been making the rounds on the internet since late last year. Some of the interest stems from Polica’s relation to the indie soft rock outfit Gayngs. Ryan Olson, founder of Gayngs, produced Give You The Ghost, and vocalist Channy Leaneagh was rotating member of Gayngs as well. Other notable touch points on the album include a guest appearance by Mike Noyce of Bon Iver (another member of Gayngs) and Jim Eno of Spoon who also helped produced the album.
