Last night POLICA, one of my favourite bands played at All Saints church in Brighton.
I love going to gigs. I spend so much time listening to music, while I’m working, running, driving, eating. To see musicians play and perform adored tunes is something special.
We walked into the church at bang on 9pm and Polica had just started their set. An exquisite venue that suited 2 drum kits, bass and lead singer, Channy Leaneagh perfectly.
Channy’s technically treated vocals are a unique mix of soft, folky wispiness and belting theatricals. The overall effect is utterly mesmerising and the echoey acoustics send you into a hypnotic like state.
It was a captivating performance ‘Dark Star’ from their first album ‘Give you the Ghost’ and ‘Chain my Name’ from Shulamith their second were the highlights.
Any gig recommendations? Need to get some dates in the diary for April!!
