Chairlift’s Caroline Polacheck to release solo debut

PolacheckChairlift singer and songwriter Caroline Polacheck is to release a solo album.

Titled Arcadia, the album will be released under the Ramona Lisa moniker on 14th April. According to the official press release it is “a concept album of love songs that are nature allegories” and was recorded at Rome’s Villa Medici.

Polachek contributed the song ‘No Angel’ to Beyonce’s eponymous album, released last year. “I thought it could be a good album track for Chairlift, but it would be incredibly sexy if Beyoncé did it,” said Polachek of the song. “Her groove was different… in my version the synths detuned really quickly for a second; she did the same thing but with her voice. It sounds like the whole song melts. It’s amazing,” she said.

You can watch the video for title track ‘Arcadia’ below.
