Sensational, which includes recent singles ‘No Butterflies, No Nothing’ and ‘Drama’, will be released on 21 May 2021 via 4AD. Now, she releases another preview from Sensational – the anti-bad boy tune “Polite”.
“Polite” was inspired by a nightmare date where her dining partner was rude to the waiter and only spoke about himself. Thinking she should walk out of the restaurant or confront his impoliteness, she sat there being nice.
The song lays out what de Casier wishes she’d said to him if she could replay the scene: “You gotta have some manners if you wanna roll with me”. Also released is the official video for “Polite”, directed by de Casier.
