Commenting on the video and the song, they share:
“The video for “Polished Decay” tackles the subject of urban gentrification, and consists of footage shot mostly in Manchester, but also in London, Berlin, New York, Pittsburgh, and other cities worldwide, showcasing the soulless and characterless high-rise buildings and glass monstrosities being built across the globe, juxtaposed against the remnants of the now derelict cultural hotspots of the towns and the remaining independent bars, cafés, and shops that continue operating as the plans of big business corporations threaten their survival.“
“Like the song itself, the video serves as a protest against this large-scale erosion of culture and art, and a call to arms for resistance against the gentrification phenomenon so we may, in the song’s words, ‘Reclaim the streets’.“
