“We made this video for ‘Angelene’ 21 years ago for the third single from ‘Is This Desire?’ but it wasn’t released at the time. We used a combination of video/16ml film and medium format Polaroids, curtains as backdrops to look like a passport booth and a selection of clothes for Polly to wear.
I wanted some of the photos to look faded/blemished/discoloured. I remember sprinkling some with bleach, and some I folded and put in my jeans back pocket and then put my jeans through my washing machine! It’s lovely to be able to watch it again now after all this time!”
– Maria Mochnacz, director
The ‘Is This Desire?’ vinyl reissue and the ‘Is This Desire? – Demos’ are released 29th January and available to pre-order now:
