-Music Videos on my Mind- Poliça’s “Amongster”

Poliça are a bunch of local musicians from Minneapolis who are, right now, struggling to maintain their low-key persona. This has a lot to do with the six-piece embracing the attention they are getting from celebrities like Jay-Z and renowned music bloggers like me.

Lead singer, Channy, has a voice that defies nature. Her ethereal tones overlap, warble and echo in beautiful ways. It's tempting to think much of Channy's vocal range is down to skilful producing, which it kind of is. Nonetheless, the production on Poliça's output really is technically epic, and Channy's ghostly voice is always at its core.

Amongster is the lead track from Poliça's debut album, Give you the Ghost. The video goes with the strange nature of the song, matching images of outdoors lovemaking and weird creature shots. It's odd, but then so is the band.


  1. Incredibly beautiful and deeply strange video. Have I heard them on an advert? The voice sounds very familiar.

  2. A very beautiful video. I like the close up of all the little creatures - I almost stepped on a snake yesterday, and I now think I like snakes. At least that one. It had an orange collar. I looked it up on Google and discovered they come in pink.

    While watching this video I kept thinking two things:
    "What kind of macro lens are they using?"
    "What if the snake bite them?"

  3. I like the sound of this. It's a strange video, but likable.
