Synopsis

"Polar Bear Trophy" is a ballad about two lovers trapped in an emotional headlock, and one finding the strength to pull the other out of her shell. Set in the woods indigenous to New Jersey-based indie folk group Jác, the video explores the song's stark emotional backdrop through a minimalist allegory that brings the woods to life.
