Following the release of their dazzling second album ‘The Broken Toys‘ Yorkshire based dark rockers Bad Pollyanna have put out an acoustic video of closing song ‘I See You’. Filmed at Whitby Goth Winter Weekend, the performance demonstrates the beautiful versatility of the new grave band.
In a stripped back and emotional rendition of the track, front woman Olivia Hyde explains the powerful message that the song contains. The stunning vocalist comments:
‘This song sums up the whole message of The Broken Toys album, which its why it is the last track. The whole album is about how we all have voices inside our head that can be extra horrible to us. I know so many people who have suffered from mental health issues such as anxiety and depression and they think its just them. They’re afraid people won’t be able to look at them without seeing a label if they come out and talk about it. The whole album is saying, you are not alone! If we talk to each other about these things it makes us stronger.’

As their oxymoronic name suggests, Bad Pollyanna celebrate both beauty and darkness. Fascinated by the human condition, their music and art explore love, life, sex and identity. ‘The Broken Toys’ is a collection of stories related to identity; how we are not the various- often abusive- voices in our heads; mental illness and, above all, what it means to be human.
Bad Pollyanna have gained their cult following after sharing stages with New Grave heroes Ashestoangels, Fearless Vampire Killers and The Dead XIII; Neo Goth superstars The Birthday Massacre; and Aiden frontman William Control on ‘The Punishment Tour” throughout the UK and Europe.
