We are delighted to introduce POLIÇA to the Toast roster, who return with their second album 'Shulamith', the follow up to 2012's breakthrough debut 'Give You The Ghost'. The album, slated for an autumn 2013 release, features 12 new songs.
The album also includes a new mix of current single 'Tiff', a slice of brooding R&B inflicted pop with lead singer Channy Leaneagh sharing vocal duties with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, which was unveiled recently accompanied by a startlingly intense music video. Directed by NABIL and Mike Piscitelli, it is a portrait of a woman as her own worst enemy.
POLIÇA's debut album 'Give You The Ghost' was one of 2012's standout debut albums with every single released being A listed at 6 Music and with 'Dark Star' and 'Lay Your Cards Out' getting playlisted on Radio 1, as well as 'Record Of The Week' accolades coming from Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens and Fearne Cotton. POLIÇA notched up two US TV performances on Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel plus a slot on Later with Jools Holland, were championed from all corners of the press including being named one of the "best albums of the year so far" in Drowned In Sound and The Guardian and topped it all with a stellar sold out show at London's Shepherds Bush Empire in March.
Having just played the XX's Night And Day Festival, they return to the UK in August for two special shows at Jodrell Bank with Siguar Ros and theEnd Of The Road Festival alongside other European dates. They will also be performing two nights at NYC's Radio City Music Hall with the XX on23 and 24 September.
