Jonny Polonsky may well be a new name to most, but mark it down - it's one you'll hear again and again.
Even Black Francis is a fan, with the Pixies frontman musing: "The guy was born to be a rock star and he makes the music to back it up.”
New album 'The Other Side of Midnight' is out now, and captured a certain David Lynch-ian treatment of the twilight gloom. Clash is able to premiere the video for 'Lay Down Your Arms' and it enhances this aesthetic.
Jonny comments: "This video was filmed in Salton Sea, a ramshackle desert town located a couple hours outside of Los Angeles. It's a very strange place, but visually stunning. The director, Chris Deford, and I braved the sweltering summer sun, biblical droves of flies, and an epically rotten stench coming from off the water (there is such a high concentration of salt that it ends up killing a lot of the fish). But, hey, it's only rock and roll, right? Chris did a great job, it looks beautiful. Enjoy."
