The new Poliça song doesn’t sound like Poliça and also features Spank Rock

The Minneapolis outfit's new track has an apocalyptic feel

Early on last year, Poliça released their excellent third album ‘United Crushers’.

Lyrically, it was an album that quietly but directly addressed social injustice, war, celebrity and what it’s like to live in trigger-happy, modern America. It didn’t take long for it’s resonance to grow in strength.

The calendar looks somewhat quieter for Poliça this year, but they’ve popped up with a pair of new tracks, their first since that album, released via Memphis Industries for Record Store Day on 22 April.

There’s ‘Lipstick Stains’, produced by Boys Noize.

And there’s our favourite of the two, ‘Still Counts’, which features Spank Rock. Channy Leaneagh has this to say about it: “Spank Rock is a rare lyrical gem and true musical artist of the damn finest quality.”
