POLIÇA began as a collaboration between fellow Gayngs' members Channy Casselle and Ryan Olson in June of 2011. By July they had completed 11 songs, made the key additions of drummers Ben Ivascu and Drew Christopherson, bass player Chris Bierdan, and headed into the studio. After Mike Noyce (Bon Iver) lent his voice on Lay Your Cards Out and Wandering Star, the record was brought to Austin, TX to be mixed with Jim Eno (Spoon). In a few days, the LP was completed and the band Poliça was formed. On stage, the original beats composed by Olson play amongst Channy’s passionate vocals & an intense rhythm section, that lead to a description somewhere in the area of electro-r&b goth-pop.
A mixture of samples, creative chopped verses, and original musicianship allow Chicago's Supreme Cuts to create some spectacular music. If How To Dress Well's balls dropped and he made a love child with James Blake while tripping acid in the back of hazy, laser light infested club, Supreme Cuts would be said child. -Small Plates Records
