Whitney Releases Animated Video For 'Polly' About Having a Bad Day.

    Whitney is a band that consists of Max Kakacek and Julien Ehrlick - two former members of Smith Westerns (Ehrlick was also a member of Unknown Mortal Orchestra) - who decided to get together and write an album called Light Upon the Lake . It's an album full of easy-going guitar runs and woozy strings alongside the retro-sounding, high-pitched vocals that make Whitney a band that is hard to compare to anyone else. They've just released a video for one of their Light Upon the Lake tracks "Polly" and it's an animated video that many can relate about having a downright awful day.

    The video begins with a blonde haired man sitting on a park bench with a blank-faced expression as he watches runners go by. Sensing the signs of despair, a dark-haired man approaches the bench for what films in the 1940s considered a compassionate "meet cute." The relationship is short-lived following a go-kart crash in the park and the protagonist takes a somber stroll through a neighborhood of pyromaniacs, drug addicts and troublesome children.

    "Polly" is a track that was inspired by breakups and heartache and it manifests the idiom, "when it rains, it pours" but in a strange way, the video induces more smiles than frowns. And with the perfectly timed trumpets and delicate vocals in "Polly"... How could you not love it?
