Tonight, Poliça play a sold-out show at Village Underground. They also have a great new video for their latest track, Wedding, which (rather than being anything to do with marriage) tackles the controversial subject matter of the relationship between America’s police force and its drug trade. The video stars Poliça singer Channy Leaneagh and ‘muppet’ friends Bad News et al, introducing a group of children to the idea that the police are not always to be trusted. The lyrics (as is standard for Poliça) are hard to decipher, but include the lines “all the cops want in” / “when we lose they win”.
Wedding is the second release from Poliça’s third album, United Crushers, out 4th March.
