Watch Polica Endure Torture While Justin Vernon Sings in Grisly 'Tiff' Video

Frontwoman Channy Leaneagh is her own worst enemy

Poliça's new album so far sounds like it will favor the emotional. Take, for example, lead single "Tiff," which features Bon Iver's Justin Vernon. Frontwoman Channy Leaneagh describes the song as a "portrait of a woman as her own worst enemy," and its bloody video makes that idea terrifyingly visual. Leaneagh plays both captive and guard in the clip, forced to both dispense and endure cruel treatment in a grisly torture scene. The Gayngs-related Minneapolis band plan to follow up last year’s complex and impressive Give You the Ghost with second album Shulamith on Mom + Pop this fall.
