Erika de Casier – “Polite”

Erika de Casier – “Polite”

Over the last few months, Erika de Casier has dropped a couple great singles — “No Butterflies, No Nothing” and “Drama” — and today she’s announced her sophomore album, Sensational, the follow-up to the Copenhagen-based musician’s 2019 debut Essentials.

She’s also shared a new song called “Polite,” a sumptuous and slow roil in which de Casier takes a boy to task for their less-than-stellar manners. “When you talk, you don’t show a lot of class/ It might work with them, but I don’t like that,” she says, delivered in a sensuous but matter-of-fact rumble. “Such a pity, I thought you were so nice/ If you want to be my type, you better start being polite.” Check it out below.
