Channy Moon Casselle is the vocalist for up and coming darlings Polica; the The Twin cities band comprised of Caselle on vocals and a unique arrangement of backing musicians. The atmospheric stew that is Polica is 2 drummers, a bass player, and Caselle singing through a legion of effects and controlling a Macbook Pro which handles the synths and sequences. And no guitar. What you get is a wide open soundscape which gives a airy palette for Casselle’s stellar vocal range. Her vocals are both delicate and powerful while the band focuses on stirring and meditative compositions with grooves a’plenty. Polica are coming to FDitz on the 25th for a free show as their roam these fair United States. Caselle was kind enough to answer a few questions ahead of that show.

Does the dis-inclusion of the guitar from Polica’s formula allow for more or less ’soundscape’? Explain.

It does allow us to create a more specific musical world.  The more space the more room for me to move freely with the bass. In this band I rhythm section to hold you while the vocals and the tracks hypnotize you without any distractions.

What music were you listening to when making the Polica record?

My little theme song this past year was BTSTU (Jai Paul) —but more than anything else I was listening to the tracks I was writing to.

Is switching gears between musical projects an easy feat when the music is so divergent from each other?

I want to be challenged in any work I do-I want to experiment with what I think I can’t do and collaborate/learn from as many sounds & people as possible. To change roles and “styles” pushes me in tons of ways and leads me closer to the lady I’m supposed to sound like.

Tell us your earliest musical memory from childhood.

My earliest musical memory is my dad killing some boogie-woogie piano & singing his heart out.

Sweet, sweet Dorsey.

Our illustrator Tim Dorsey is single. He has fallen in love with you. He does not have a car, has epilepsy and often blacks out naked when drinking. Yet he says he would be your man slave for eternity and would lay down on the freeway during morning traffic if you see fit. Does he have a chance?

NO ANSWER.
