Poliça’s previous album was written after frontwoman Channy Leaneagh almost gave up her career in music. That’s until she fell off her roof trying to remove ice. Her doctor suggested she rewrite the story of her fall to make it seem less traumatic. The result was the album ‘When We Stay Alive.' It was released just weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic swept America. During the pandemic, Channy and the band worked day jobs to get by, but they kept making music together. They have just released a new record called ‘Madness’. On the album, Channy reflects on her pandemic day job working at a grocery store and reclaiming her sexuality after reflecting on her personal experiences with sexual abuse and assault.
