“The sound of heartbreak and celebration simultaneously" –Rolling Stone on the music of Poliça

“Orchestral support can often feel self-indulgent and egotistical with the orchestra only there to serve the band. But here it feels entirely equal; two like-minded musical entities fluidly playing and communicating with each other.” –Huffington Post on the work and philosophy of s t a r g a z e 

“Aggressive and gorgeous… erases the line between electronic and acoustic music.” –NPR on the music of Daniel Wohl
