Minneapolis-based Polica has been taking the indie scene by storm since its debut album release, Give You the Ghost. The album has critics raving, from Rolling Stone and Consequence of Sound to NPR and The Huffington Post; and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver has called Polica "the best band (he's) ever heard." Polica was founded in 2011 by Ryan Olson and Channy Leaneagh who had previously collaborated in Gayngs. Rolling Stone's review of the album said that Leaneagh's "focused, tender voice cascades over dense fields of minor key electronics, backed by funked-up bass and a swarm of percussion. It's the sound of heartbreak and celebration happening simultaneously." The Huffington Post review of Polica's SXSW performance said that "Polica makes moody music that will stick to your bones. This band is going to be huge."
