Polica: "Amongster"

Not sure if this video is meant to draw a parallel between human mating rituals and wildlife or contrast the two, but aside from being well shot I'm not really digging it. Cheap dichotomies do not make for very compelling videos. The tune, however, is a totally different prospect: ethereal, wispy dream pop clashes with frantic, drum & bass-inspired live percussion to build to the kind of rousing climax the skeezed out video was going for.

Polica is a Minneapolis duo that has frequently drawn comparisons to Gayngs... an easy thread to follow, Polica frontwoman Channy Casselle having sung on the latter's Relayted LP as well as joining them on tour. Give You the Ghost gives Casselle a chance to shine on her own.
