Caroline Polachek returns today with brand new single “Bunny Is A Rider”. The track is her first release since her recent cover of The Corrs’ “Breathless” and her first original music since her critically acclaimed 2019 debut solo album PANG. “Bunny Is A Rider” is a sonic departure for Polachek after the crystalline sentimentality of 2019’s PANG - the single takes a spicy and absurd new turn. The track premiered today as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1.
Caroline on the song; “'Bunny Is A Rider' is a summer jam about being unavailable. Bunny is slippery, impossible to get ahold of. Maybe it’s a fantasy, maybe it’s a bad attitude. But anyone can be bunny, at least for three minutes and seventeen seconds. The song features a scorching bass performance from producer Danny L Harle, plus his baby daughter’s first vocal cameo.”
The single release follows the announcement of three huge shows across the US and UK this year. Polachek will grace stages at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles (August 5th) with support from Alex G & Molly Lewis, The Roundhouse in London (October 28th) with support from oklou before closing out the year at Terminal 5 in New York (December 2nd) with support from oklou and Arooj Aftab, notably historic in LA as one of the first shows booked after it’s 2021 reopening. Tickets are available now HERE.
Polachek picks up just where she left off after the release of her critically praised album PANG, with a live set sure to highlight singles “Ocean of Tears”, “Door” and “So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings”, the latter which she performed on her late night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Through 2020, Polachek released four new remixes as single b-sides from the album, an extended version of the track “Gate” and a cover of The Corrs’ 2000 hit “Breathless”, performed live on The Late Late Show with James Corden. PANG was given high praise NPR, Pitchfork, The FADER, PAPER, Paste, NYLON and Vice and was named the #1 album of the year by Dazed.
