Polished is the refreshingly raw new video from American electro pop artist Skofee.

In Polished, Skofee catalogues her flaws in a grounded and relatable way. Lyrically it’s full of details and vignettes that plants the track in the everyday. We all suffer from doubts and it’s cathartic to have a few minutes of shared anxiety. This is what Polished provides through echoing vocals and a memorable chorus.
Raised in Kansas, Skofee grew up on bluegrass which goes some way to explain the folkiness of her lyrics.
The clever video combines animation with live action and visual tricks. You can check it out below.
