Poliça announce new album ‘Madness’, share pulsating new track ‘Alive’

The new record is described as something of a companion piece to 2020’s ‘When We Stay Alive’

Poliça have announced details of new album ‘Madness’ and shared the pulsating first single from the record – listen to ‘Alive’ below.

‘Madness’ is out June 3 and has been described as “something of a companion piece” to 2020’s ‘When We Stay Alive’.

The album was mostly recorded between 2020 and 2021 in Ryan Olson’s Minneapolis studio and was partially created by anthropomorphic production tool “AllOvers(c)”, which was designed by Olson and fellow producer and sound-artist Seth Rosetter.

According to vocalist Channy Leaneagh, the lyrics across ‘Madness’ represent the idea that “I am here for you all and I am never truly myself here. I am her for you all and I am never truly her”.

Poliça have also released the first track from ‘Madness’. Check out ‘Alive’ below.

Speaking about the song, Leaneagh said: “Bad things happen, the fire goes out; even with the best flammables it stays dark until nothing matters becomes the fire itself.”
