Caroline Polachek is back with a new single called ‘Sunset’. Co-produced with Sega Bodega, the track arrives with an accompanying visual co-directed by Matt Compson and Polachek and filmed in Barcelona. Check it out below.
“Resolution is so rare in life, but music is unnaturally full of it,” Polachek said in a statement. “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.”
Earlier this year, Polachek released her song ‘Billions’, which also came with a Compson-directed video. Before that, she put out ‘Bunny Is a Rider’ in 2021, and her debut solo album, Pang, came out in 2019. More recently, she released an aria written for Oliver Leith’s opera Last Days.
