Video: Ramona Lisa, “Dominic”

From the infectiously bizarre spandex onesie she wore while performing in her band Chairlift’s “Amanaemonesia” music video, to writing “No Angel” for Beyoncé’s visual album, to her new alter-ego fueled solo project Ramona Lisa, singer Caroline Polachek has maintained a taut connection between elegance and strangeness. Two days after releasing her debut solo album, Arcadia, Polachek released a music video for the lush, doo-wop inspired “Dominic” on The video, which she also directed and edited, follows her into a forest green prism, then a ramshackle rowboat through the Florida everglades. Her impeccable geometric green romper, perfectly cropped bangs and eyeball-esque manicure feels both complimentary and at odds with the raw marshland and alligator-infested waters, just as the tracks on Arcadia expertly cultivate discordancy out of Polachek’s total control of her voice.
