This collaborative project between Minneapolis synth pop group Poliça and Berlin-based orchestra s t a r g a z e is a joining of forces against the fear and despondency of the past two years in the US and Europe: “We had our hands on progress,” as they put it. “And then it flipped.” André de Ridder of s t a r g a z e told consequence of sound web mag about the the making of our featured track “Agree” happened the second time we collaborated, s t a r g a z e’s first time in the US, at the Fitzgerald in St Paul. It was the first time we played the song. Ryan sent it to me and Romain arranged it on the flight and we workshopped it before the premiere. The most interesting thing about the song is that it has a sweetness, but is also spooky. The notes overlap one another, and create a contradiction, tension.
