Following on from their recent album Shulamith, the follow up to last year’s Give You the Ghost, POLIÇA are all set to release new single I Need $ on 3rd March 2014.
I Need $ (spoken as I Need Money) is Shulamith’s most R&B / pop inflected track and contains the lyric that, according to vocalist and songwriter Channy Leaneagh, best sums up the themes of the record: “Chasing and wasting for our own desires, we love what we need until the need grows tired”.
The transfixing video for I Need $ premiered today on The Guardian and echoes these themes, starring Channy as a daydreaming motel chambermaid. It segues into a coda of album closer So Leave, an inclusion on which director Isaac Ravishankara notes: “Having “So Leave” in the video felt as natural as a continuation of the story as it does musically on the album.”
POLIÇA are heading to the UK in February for a string of shows including their biggest headline performance at London’s The Troxy, which is close to selling out.
