Caroline Polachek has unveiled a new live performance music video for “Smoke.” In the clip for her Desire, I Want to Turn Into You song, Polachek performs with her band amid volcano sculptures, smoke, and glowing red scenery. Polachek’s band included Maya Laner, Matthew Horton, and Russell Holzman. Watch the Matt Copson–directed visual below.
Last month, Polachek stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to sing “Welcome to My Island” in the pitch dark while playing a guitar solo. Desire, I Want to Turn Into You also includes the singles “Billions,” “Blood and Butter,” and “Sunset,” which she released at the start of this year, and her 2021 hit “Bunny Is a Rider.”
On April 14, Polachek will kick off her North American tour in support of her new album. She’ll be joined at various dates by Sudan Archives, Alex G, George Clanton, Magdalena Bay, and Ethel Cain. Afterward, she flies over to Europe for a string of dates, including festival performances at Primavera Sound, Roskilde, and Flow Festival, among others.
