Rory Mckellar has directed and shot the video for Polina's Little Babylon, featuring the artist performing in a rundown Californian trailer park as she reminisces of better times somewhere else.

"Little Babylon represents a happy and safe place," says Polina. "When I wrote this song, it was a sense of nostalgia for those care-free times, with notes of young summer romanticism... [The video] recreates some of those timeless memories for me."
