POLIÇA

When We Stay Alive (Memphis Industries)

There’s an interesting backstory to POLIÇA’s fourth album. She fell off her roof in early 2018, which left her in a brace with limited mobility for months. Her doctor told her to focus not on physical healing, but to meditate on the mental act of healing too, working to erase anger, regrets etc. The result is an album of leftfield art-pop that feels unmoored, the skittery melodies underpinning her silvery vocals. Bravo!
