After announcing that her second solo album ‘Desire, I Want To Turn Into You’ will be out on Valentine’s Day, Caroline Polachek has shared the video for first single ‘Welcome To My Island’.
Co-directed by Caroline and Matt Copson, the video follows Caroline through a series of different vignettes, including grabbing a coffee at a coffee shop and becoming a Chimera (that’s a creature from Greek mythology that’s part lion, part goat and part snake, of course).
‘Desire, I Want To Turn Into You’ follows her debut ‘PANG’, which came out back in 2019.
Alongside the new video, Caroline has also announced her upcoming Spiralling tour across North America, with support from Alex G, Toro Y Moi, Ethel Cain, Magdalena Bay, Sudan Archives and George Clanton.
