POLIÇA - MADNESS VINYL (LTD. ED. YELLOW)
LIMITED EDITION YELLOW VINYL
Release Date: 24th June 2022
"POLIÇA, the Minneapolis-based project of singer Channy Leaneagh, producer Ryan Olson, bassist Chris Bierden and drummers Ben Ivascu and Drew Christopherson, announce their new album, ‘Madness’, via Memphis Industries. ‘Madness’ is POLIÇA’s seventh release since 2012’s ground breaking debut LP ‘Give You The Ghost’. Recorded mostly from 2020-2021 in Ryan Olson’s Minneapolis studio with lyrics written and recorded by Channy Leaneagh in her room, ‘Madness’ is an experimental expansion of the four-piece family band of Chris Bierden (bass), Drew Christopherson and Ben Ivascu (drums) to include the anthropomorphic production tool ‘AllOvers(c)’, designed by Olson and fellow producer and sound-artist Seth Rosetter. This latest release continues within the collaborative enclave in which POLIÇA resides and includes co-production by Dustin Zahn (‘Alive’ and ‘Away’), Alex Ridha and Alex Nutter (‘Violence’). First single from the album is the anthemic pulse of ‘Alive’, which Channy Leaneagh describes as follows: “Bad things happen, the fire goes out; even with the best flammables it stays dark until nothing matters becomes the fire itself.” POLIÇA began in Minneapolis in 2011 when singer Channy Leaneagh started collaborating with Ryan Olson, the producer of Jagjaguwar-signed soft rock collective Gayngs, on a new batch of synthesizer and percussion- heavy arrangements. Channy was in the process of emerging from a personal and creative break up, with this informing much of the lyrical content of the songs."
