Poliça - Smug | London Sessions from AllSaints on Vimeo.

Minneapolis duo Poliça consistently craft elegant songs where Channy Leaneagh's vocals stand rightfully front and center. She's got the kind of vocals that need little adornment, just a bit of reverb so that it her tones echo eerily after.

Above is an exclusive live performance of "Smug"—lifted form their second album Shulamith—shot by label AllSaints in moodily lit monochrome. The London brand has long had an association with music, thanks in part to their Basement Sessions which featured live sets by Kelis, Tricky, and Alpines, as well as collaborations with Kings of Leon. This performance is part of AllSaints' London Sessions, a kind of Basement Sessions reboot. To see more click here.
