Minneapolis synthpoppers Poliça’s video for “Warrior Lord,” a song from their forthcoming album Shulamith, is about two girls swimming in a lake. Or, anyway, that’s all it’s about on paper. In practice, the video, from directors Isaac Gale and David Jensen, exists entirely in a rhapsodic dreamworld of bubbles and reflected sunbeams and floating strands of hair. It is a deeply pretty piece of work, and the song itself is as murkily beguiling as all the other songs we’ve heard from Shulamith (“Chain My Name,” “Smug,” the Justin Vernon collab “Tiff“). Watch it below.
Shulamith is out 10/21 on Memphis Industries.
