Caroline Polachek blazes a trail on new single ‘Sunset’.

Everything she touches turns to gold, with Caroline Polachek fresh from recent single ‘Billions’ and her internet-shattering release ‘Bunny Is A Rider’.

Out now, ‘Sunset’ finds the polymath pivoting once more, the delicious guitar line sitting amid those undulating electronic layers of melodic digitalism. Sega Bodega steps in on production, while Caroline Polachek’s songwriting reveals a hidden admiration for Ennio Morricone, and his legendary Western scores.

Directed by Matt Copson and Caroline Polachek, the video is bathed in light, with Caroline Polachek exuding energy.

She comments…

Resolution is so rare in life, but music is unnaturally full of it. A sunset is the biggest pop cliche ever, because it’s a perfect resolution. Ennio Morricone passed away a few months before Salvador (Sega Bodega) and I started ‘Sunset’, and the folkloric, epic tone of the Spaghetti Western sunset played on my mind.”

I wanted an operatic chorus with no lyrics, but salted with some very real disillusionment: past all the distraction, dead ends, and false promises of the world is the love we too often take for granted. That’s my sunset.”

Tune in now.

Catch Caroline Polachek on tour early next year – she plays O2 Academy Brixton in London on Valentine’s Day.
