Whitney (the band, not the late pop singer) have shared a new video for ‘Polly’. The song appears on their debut album ‘Light Upon The Lake,’ which the Chicagoans released back in June.
The video took Tokyo-based animator Sarina Nihei two months to create, and it follows a lone man as he journeys through a slightly dystopian town filled with giant surreal-looking monsters, and sudden sewage explosions. Trotting down the street, he passes people shooting heroin, collapsing into pints, and huddling around dead pigeons. According to the band’s press release, it’s a nod to the vices that can trigger break-ups.
In November, Whitney kick off a UK tour, catch them in the following places.
03 Brighton, Haunt
04 Nottingham, Bodega Social Club
05 Glasgow, CCA
06 Newcastle, Cluny
08 Manchester, Gorilla
09 Bristol, Thekla
10 London, Koko

They’ll be joined by Glass Animals, Caribou, Whitney and more.
Highlights also include girl in red, CHAI and Mac DeMarco.
Returning with new LP ‘Forever Turned Around’, we find the duo in a more reflective, melancholy state of mind - but still finding beauty in what might seem bleak.
We’re not asking Whitney to soundtrack a raging rebellion, we just want them to make us feel things.
