Co-directed by Matt Copson, Caroline Polachek drops the new music video for her recent single “Sunset.” Shot during the golden hours at the beautiful beaches of Barcelona, the visuals feature the American singer-songwriter sitting on a sofa at an open-air party, playing the guitar.
The multi-framed video follows Polachek as she strolls the streets of the capital of Catalonia. She’s seen driving on the road, walking at the beach, and sketching on the rooftop of a building. The graphic also hints at her previously released single “Bunny Is a Rider,” which is written on a bumper sticker, along with several others that say “You never felt so close to me,” “Welcome to my island,” and “How does it feel being so rich.”
Polachek reveals that “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,” and that’s why she has decided to name the song sunset. She explains her creative choices and how she co-produced the track with Sega Bodega, “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.”
Following the critically acclaimed “Billions,” Caroline Polachek is bound to shine with her third release “Sunset.” Her ethereal vocals, Balearic arrangements, and profound lyrics, earn the artist another milestone, as she sings, “These days I wear my body like an uninvited guest/ I turn it right, and right, and right instead of turning left/ But boy, your patience is a magic kind of medicine/ ‘Cause every spiral brings me back into your arms again.”
