Polly Baker, ‘Wild’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Polly Baker is debuting the music video for her track “Wild” exclusively for readers of The Boot.
The “Wild” video, filmed on Manhattan Beach and in downtown Los Angeles, provides a fitting backdrop for the bubbly, West Coast-influenced pop-country song thanks to text overlays featuring snippets from the lyrics, vintage-inspired shots and Baker’s beyond-awesome purple sequin dress. The clip was directed by Andrew Franz and produced by Mike Dausend.
“I’m talkin’ purple skies, whiskey eyes, your lips all over mine / Just you and I,” Baker sings in the chorus of “Wild.” “Flashing lights, passing cars, like shooting stars on the boulevard / You keep me safe / And I’ll keep you wild.”
Baker wrote “Wild” with Richard Wynne and Dave Darling; the tune was also produced by Darling. Readers can press play above to watch its accompanying music video.
A Berklee College of Music graduate and country newcomer, Baker was born and raised in Virginia by a musical family. She started singing in church when she was four years old, picked up the piano a year later, and wrote her first song (called “Dreams”) at the ripe old age of 10. Baker honed her skills at local festivals and singing competitions while leading the praise and worship team at her church, performing for more than 10,000 folks every Sunday; she’s also shared the stage with acts such as Melissa Manchester and Chanel West Coast.
Baker’s self-titled EP, on which “Wild” appears, was released in June. The project is available for download via iTunes.
