Riff: Poliça – “Tiff”

Oct 22, 2013

Tiffany my vanity/Compared to you, compared to me/I’m a pawn in the hype machine/You’re a pawn in the caring scheme

from Tiff lyrics by Poliça

Newfound success can cast a transformative spell on people. For Channy she’s wrestling with the dual nature of having to be an emerging pop star one moment, and a relatively tight-lip artist the next. It’s like stepping out on the coast of an unknown land where you’re caught between two worlds.
