Poliça – “I Need $” / “So Leave” Video

The Minneapolis synthpop trio Poliça released their very good sophomore album Shulamith a few months ago, and their new video strings together the last two songs on that LP, “I Need $” and “So Leave.” In the clip Poliça frontwoman Channy Leaneagh plays a dual role — as a hotel maid who dreams of other lives and as, I think, herself. It’s a doppelgangers-cross-paths storyline that leads interesting places, and like Poliça’s videos for “Tiff” and “Warrior Lord,” it’s got an odd sort of power to it. Isaac Ravishankara directs; watch it below.

Shulamith is out now on Memphis Industries.
