Desire, I Want To Turn Into You is Polachek’s first album release since her 2019 experimental pop masterpiece PANG which cemented her as a generational talent. Working again with co-producer Danny L. Harle, Polachek pulls from her complete arsenal, layering and weaving familiar and unfamiliar sounds to make large-scale pop songs with specific human feelings. Desire, I Want To Turn Into You creates discrete vignettes about love, heartbreak, disappointment, proximity, distance, and lust and with all the care given to the architecture of the sounds. It’s a collection of big songs that hit immediately then stay with you and continue to echo and bloom. It’s a canvas with earth and water and blood-toned colors splashed against it.
