MP3: Amongster by Polica
It’s the echoed harmonies that sell this song. Sure, the deliciously fuzzed out guitar (bass? synth?) peaks interest early. And the machine gun drums that begin to crest around the three minute mark and continue into a relentless pummel drill the point home. But it’s those haunting vocal echoes, making Channy Leaneagh’s lyrics almost indecipherable, that pack the song’s entire emotional punch. Grab the song for free below.
