Watch Skating Polly’s New Video “They’re Cheap (I’m Free)”

Skating Polly have shared a new video for their song “They’re Cheap (I’m Free),” which is taken from the band’s latest album The Make It All Show, out now via El Camino Media.

All the art in the video is made out of trash, and our wardrobe was lent to us by this awesome thrift store in Echo Park called Sunday’s Best,” explains vocalist Kelli Mayo. “We had a crew of four amazing people and we only did things we could do for cheap or for free.

Regarding the lyrics, Mayo continues: “The title alone is one of my favorite lines I’ve ever written. The surface narrative of the song is about some high-class businessman/politician who’s cheating on his wife with prostitutes and I’m singing from the perspective of the wife. It was inspired by the way I’d been feeling in my personal life, but also all the news at the time, and decided the best way to let it all out would be to vent through the voice of a fed up trophy wife whose anger is much more passionate and wild than any affair.”
