Skating Polly share new single and video ‘I’m Sorry For Always Apologizing’ – the second track to be taken from their new album Chaos County Line, which is set for release on June 23 via El Camino Media.
Following the raucous single ‘Hickey King’ and sold out live dates across Europe, this new cut is a deceptively joyous rock song. “Doctors don’t think I’m sick / Just a self important prick” Kelli Mayo sings sweetly, sending up her past relationship mistakes with a cutting sense of self-judgement.
“This song has some of my favorite lyrics on the record” she comments. “It was originally inspired by my very real habit of over apologizing, then the concept came to me to write it from a perspective of constantly hurting someone you’re wildly in love with, which is a feeling I unfortunately know all too well. So, some of it is definitely hyperbole, but some of it is about my short-lived love affair with the bass player from Starcrawler. And the super huge prick I make myself out to be as the narrator is my big fear of how I must’ve come across to him and is also a furthering of many apologies I’ve given him on the matter…”
The track is brought to life with a humourous touch in the accompanying video, directed by Chris Papierniak.
