Ryan Pollie has maintained a steady output since he began releasing material under the moniker of Los Angeles Police Department. He quickly followed up last fall’s home-recorded self-titled debut with a downer Christmas single called “Oh Lonely Night”. Now, he’s back at it again with a new 7-inch single out February 24th via Fat Possum Records.

Entitled “Insecurity”, the track is marked by copious guitar distortion and booming drum tones, with Pollie’s self-deprecating lyrics even harsher overtop the crackling, lo-fi production. Los Angeles Police Department – aka Los Angeles-based songwriter Ryan Pollie We have been watching/listening to Pollie’s (ex-Warm Weather) fuzzy, lo-fi works for a year now since he first dropped ‘Waste’ our way last February from his California bedroom, followed by his self-titled eleven-track debut album, which was released in September thru Forged Artifacts/ChillMegaChill.

Now signed to Fat Possum, his debut single for the label, ‘Insecurity’, is a three-and-a-half minute morning after reflection on a one night stand. Introspective lyrics run with distorted guitars and far-out drumd in a typical LAPD lo-fi production.’
