“Spent” is the final song on “Los Angeles Police Department,” the sophomore album from Los Angeles Police Department and its mastermind, Ryan Pollie, who sings sad songs with a smile and still fields questions about whether he’s breaking any law by having Los Angeles Police Department as a band name. Pollie is the kind of guy who can tug a heartstring with a simple line like “I left my heart out in the rain,” not to mention somebody who imagines that his Technicolor present will someday fade to a sepia-toned memory.
The video for “Spent” is like that. It’s cut like a home movie. “It kind of shows what my life is like living in Los Angeles,” Pollie says. “Right now, the video feels like home — my friends, my girlfriend, my cat, my piano. But I think in 10 years it’ll be cool for me to look back at this video because it’s very much a moment in time.
“For example, my cat will be a lot older by then.”
