Whitney release video for “Polly”

Whitney release new video for "Polly", the track is off their album 'Light Upon The Lake'

Whitney have unveiled a new video for “Polly.” Tokyo-based award-winning animator and illustrator Sarina Nihei directed, animated and hand-painted the entire video over the course of two months. It focuses on vices that serve as causes for broken relationships between people and also represents the idea that no one is able to understand other people’s actual feelings.

The “Polly” video perfectly complements Whitney’s origin story. Both Julien Ehrlich and Max Kakacek were going through especially painful breakups almost simultaneously when they began writing the songs that would become Light Upon The Lake. “There’s a lot of true feeling behind these songs,” says Ehrlich. “We wanted them to have a part of our personalities in them. We wanted the songs to have soul.”
