Poliça had already recorded its first full-length album before making its live debut locally. So the mystery behind the band after its inaugural show in September 2011 was already remarkably large — especially considering the musicians' previous projects, which include Roma di Luna, Bon Iver and Gayngs.

Featuring Channy Leaneagh, Chris Bierden, Drew Christopherson and Ben Ivascu, Poliça has already attracted widespread interest across the country. On the heels of a recent tour with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah — and a record produced by Ryan Olson (Gayngs, Digitata) and mixed by Jim Eno of Spoon — the band has proven that releasing only a handful of tracks as a teaser can stand in for a big press push.

Poliça's debut, Give You the Ghost, comes out Feb. 14, but the group has already released it on iTunes. The band's song "Wandering Star" was recently featured on The Current's latest compilation, Local Current, Vol. 2, alongside Doomtree, Nightmoves, Howler and more.
