Electro-pop band Poliça is known for its memorable live performances, propelled by the alluring voice and moves of lead singer Channy Leaneagh, not to mention two drummers with full kits. The group broke out of the Minneapolis music scene just a year ago with its 2012 debut, Give You The Ghost, a heady mix of beauty and power.

Poliça is back already with an electrifying followup called Shulamith. The group performed highlights from the new record in this concert, originally webcast live on Nov. 6, 2013.
