Poliça | Driving

Poliça announce a new LP coming, “When We Stay Alive” (Jan. 31), a tour and streams for two new tracks, “trash in bed” and “Driving”, the latter of which can be heard below. Poliça lead singer Channy Leaneagh fell off her roof while clearing ice in early 2018 and smashed her L1 vertebrae and battered her spine, leaving her in a brace with limited mobility for months. My mind went to Frida Kahlo, seeing her post about the brace via Instagram a ways back. The record is made with that specter and more. She said this: “Laying in bed, as I healed from a 10 foot fall of carelessness with my life, I would dream of running in green grass and tears would pour from my eyes. Running in the tall grass; imagine wanting life and the want remains. That is a feeling to hold onto; that life is worth living even when all the towers are crumbling and this goes beyond my own little accident but the world around me. Following the crone into the sinking ship and having the chance to return without a shadow. Drive on, Drive on. A second chance I won’t forget.”
