Listen to Poliça’s new single “Smug”

on September 25, 2013, 3:45pm


Minneapolis R&B outfit Poliça have unveiled the latest single off their forthcoming sophomore LP, Shulamith, due out on October 22nd via Mom + Pop. Whereas the Justin Vernon-aided “Tiff” and “Chain My Name” were built for sweaty discos, “Smug” is best suited for walking through a rain-soaked city whilst quietly mulling over one’s romantic options. The reverb of the drums and lasery synths develop the track’s brooding atmospherics, at which point Channy Leaneagh seals the deal with her big, theatrical croon that eschews clarity for intensity. Sure, it’s possible to strut your stuff to this number, but it’s true power lies when it gets you all alone and consumes you from the inside out. Listen in below.

01. Chain My Name
02. Smug

05. Very Cruel
