Remember when we introduced you to Skating Polly, the teenage girls with the most cake? Well, the snotty step-sister duo is back with the a single off their forthcoming album Nothing More Than a Body. The sneering, eponymous track was written as an existential response to meeting long-time idol Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, after a member of Elf Power scorched their nerves with a few morbid words: "He's nothing more than a body." That's some pretty dark advice, but Skating Polly chews it up and spits it in out in a kiss-off home-made video.
And if hanging with the Elephant 6 roster isn't enough star-power for you, Skating Polly is about to hit the road with 90s rockstars Babes in Toyland for a European tour.
