Polartropica returns by leaking another whimsical single, “The Past Could Be,” off her forthcoming debut EP Astrodreams (Lolipop Records). After its soothing intro, the song turns into a swirly burst of dreamy reverie aided by shimmery synths and danceable pop beats.
“My senses play a trick on me.”
And here’s its aptly beautiful music video which was directed by indie folkster Simone White and shot in Manhattan Beach (the “surfing” scenes) and Echo Park (the backyard costume party). Make sure to note the hilarious, swan-straddling cameo by saxophonist Joe Santa Maria (with more footage during the credits).
