Let yourself be taken on the journey
Polica - Give You The Ghost

Poliça is the first project to emerge from the Gayngs stable and, rather unsurprisingly, doesn’t disappoint. Ryan Olsen delivers a lesson in production by hammering out synth driven layers, held together by the completely diametrically opposed Channy Leanagh - who imparts an altered vocal so soft and somehow natural that you wonder how the effect can be this integrated. It shouldn’t work: Olsen and Leanagh are from different musical planets. Yet it does. Take Poliça out of the Gayngs context and allow the album the space it deserves on its own merit. This record is an exploration into the synergy of reengineering technology and humanity. Let yourself be taken on the journey.
