Caroline Polachek

Caroline Polachek is a singularity: One of music’s most continually inventive pop auteurs, a shimmering ribbon of a voice that’s immediately recognizable, a self-releasing independent artist, a crate digger, and a lifelong headphone listener who writes songs that literally fill stadiums.

Her new album Desire, I Want To Turn Into You is her seventh album, but the second under her name. If 2019’s Pang was an ephemeral, crystalline document of risking everything for new love, Desire is Polachek at her most physical, turning up the temperature and trading tight narrative for visceral tone-poetry. Desire is a constellation of big, potent songs that hit immediately then stay with you and continue to echo and bloom. It’s a canvas with earth and water and blood-toned colors splashed against it.
