Video: Polly Scattergood – Wanderlust

by Amanda Danielle

The single “Wanderlust” from Polly Scattergood’s upcoming sophomore album Arrows is accompanied by a quite literal video. The concept correlates with the vibe and lyrics to the catchy song (which has also been remixed by Charli XCX and How To Dress Well). It’s reminiscent of The XX’s “Islands” video where the same scene is replayed over and over with subtle changes throughout until you get to the final image. In Scattergood’s video, you observe the young girl is going through life obstacles, somewhat different, somewhat similar, but manages to escape each time and each time she reaches the door she seems to have matured. If the song is a preview of what we can expect from Arrows, I’d say we’re in for a treat June 18, 2013 with it’s release.
