Minneapolis based Polica drew a full house at Turner Hall Wednesday, and already sounded polished only after their 2nd date of an extensive international tour. They’ll be joining Bon Iver in Germany this summer and be back in time for Lollapolooza in Chicago.
Created by two members of the Midwest band Gayngs, vocalist Channy Leaneagh and producer Ryan Olson, the act brings indie, R&B, electronica together. They harness some of the charm in Florence & the Machine-esque vocal production and delivery, as well as anthem like compositions, but have a sound all their own, featuring two drummers that know how to incorporate electronic elements, and a vocalist who can sound like Sade or Sinead O’Connor in the same song. A great live set, as they were able to give heavy doses of whisper quiet moments and never lose the crowd.

Unfortunately, I missed Collections of Colonies of Bees, but from what I know of their music and gathered from other concert goers, they were a perfect fit musically and very well received. Check them out on their <a href=”websitehttp://collectionsofcoloniesofbees.net”>website</a>.
