See Polica Play Motel Housekeeper in Dreamy ‘I Need $’ Video

R&B-mining outfit plot string of U.K. shows for February

Poliça have completed their de facto trilogy of music videos supporting last year’s Shulamith album. Following the torture-porn nightmare seen in “Tiff” and the dream-like paradise depicted in “Warrior Lord,” we have a new visual for upcoming single “I Need $.” Directed by Isaac Ravishankara, the video casts singer Channy Leaneagh as a motel cleaning woman who longs for a different kind of life, who’d rather daydream than scrub away strangers’ messes. We won’t give away the ending entirely, but know that the six-and-a-half-minute piece includes a coda of “So Leave,” the closing track from Poliça’s sophomore LP.

“Having ‘So Leave’ in the video felt as natural as a continuation of the story as it does musically on the album,” Ravishankara said in an official statement, explaining the addition. Check out the video above, scroll down for Poliça’s tour dates, and watch for the official “I Need $” single, which drops on March 3.
