For this week’s Local Eye’s PollyHill teams up with Dera Meelan and Alexa Casino for ‘Spooky’, her first drop since EP Greatest Hits.
The new single, fitted with the usual witty bars and not-so-usual blood curdling screams, sees PollyHill’s music video directional debut — co-directed with Freya Finch — nothing too far from Paloma Schneideman‘s skill set as an NZIFF award winner. Drawing from vintage horror cinema, the Tāmaki rapper melds genre worlds to create a mini Nosferatu, swapping out creaking ’20s organs for 2020 beats and her own haunting, husky vocals.
Catch PollyHill live at festivals Rhythm & Vines and Soundsplash this summer, and catch the Super 8mm version here…
