Poliça is the musical project led by former Roma di Luna singer Channy Casselle, who joined Vampire Hands bassist Chris Bierden and drummers Ben Ivascu and Drew Christopherson in 2011. With Ryan Olson as producer, Poliça creates a sound reminiscent of Gayngs, another one of Olson's musical endeavors, complete with hypnotic auto-tuned vocals and melodic bass lines. The group isn't just a spinoff of the Gayngs, essentially a super-group of musicians who split the vocal performances equally. Casselle is the natural anchor of Poliça. Her distinctive voice is almost too endearing to be auto-tuned, but she uses it more as an instrument, playing and matching guitar rhythms and drum beats. Poliça played its fourth show as a band in front of a sold out crowd at the Bowery Ballroom in New York, quickly generating a fan base and a fair amount of attention for its 2012 debut album, Give You the Ghost.
