ACL Festival Preview: Poliça

Many of the artists I've featured in this week leading up to ACL Festival are artists I featured leading up to SXSW this year. Poliça is one such band. I'm not featuring them again to recycle content, I'm featuring them again because I feel that ACL and SXSW have different audiences and I really believe in Poliça. Their 2011 release, Give You the Ghost is edgy, interesting music with beautiful vocals and loads of percussion. In a live-setting the band is composed of 2 drummers and a bass player, which puts the gorgeous, haunting vocals on center stage. I think a big festival crowd is the perfect showcase for the big music that this band performs and I look forward to seeing them win-over lots of new fans on Sunday. Poliça will be on the Honda Stage at 3:15pm, which is the perfect time for you to arrive on the festival's final day. I know that you're going to be tired from the first two days of music and I can assure you that this is the perfect way to ease you in to the final day.
