Album Review Caroline Polachek - Desire, I Want To Turn Into You

Caroline Polachek - Desire, I Want To Turn Into You

You’ll be hard pushed to find an album that sounds anything like ‘Desire, I Want To Turn Into You’, the seventh release by alt-pop empress Caroline Polachek, and the second under her own name. Built around the unmistakable concept of spiralling, it learns further into the traditionalism that underpinned the more folk-inspired parts of 2019’s ‘Pang’, pairing her distinctive style with an onslaught of curveballs that cover everything from classical Spanish to award-winning bagpipes. Look no further than the Grimes and Dido featuring ‘Fly To You’, a swirling trip hop fantasy for a small glimpse of Caroline’s beautifully-crafted, wide-cast net.
