Pick: April 23 Poliça

April 23
Poliça w/ Night Moves
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $14, onepercentproductions.com

The collaboration of vocalist Channy Leaneagh and restless Minneapolis musician Ryan Olson (Gayngs, Marijuana Deathsquads) has quickly built a head of steam on the dichotomy of the smoldering, subdued electro-pop of their 2012 debut album, Give Up the Ghost, and a live show that reportedly burns hotter. Poliça's strength is in the restrained power of Leaneagh's vocals, twisted into odder, Auto-tuned shapes, as they collide with skittering percussive, bubbling, gurgling electro-synthetic elements and the buzz of basslines. It's an off-kilter mixture of future-focused pop and electro-minded R&B music that draws off a similiar well as artists like Lana Del Ray and Zola Jesus. Poliça is bound to increase their profile too, as they just released a new studio track "Tiff" featuring Gayng's collaborator Justin Vernon, who also fronts a little project called Bon Iver.
