Poliça return with new single  “Driving” Zoe Prinds-Flash

This coming winter, Poliça will release their fourth album When We Stay Alive. It'll be the Minnesota band's first project since frontwoman Channy Leaneagh fell off her roof at the top of 2018, an accident that damaged her L1 vertebrae and left her with limited mobility. As a result, the project will magnify her healing process with songs about self reevaluation. The first is "Driving," a hazy track that works its way from a queasy mirage into a healthy groove.

"Laying in bed, as I healed, I would dream of running in green grass and tears would pour from my eyes," Leaneagh wrote in a press statement. "Running in the tall tear grass; imagine wanting life and the want remains. That is a feeling to hold onto, that life is worth living even when all signs point no." Watch the scorching video for "Driving," and peep Poliça's ongoing tour itinerary, below.
