In the early 2000s I was obsessed with an indie pop band called Chairlift. They were cofounded by Caroline Elizabeth Polachek, an American singer, producer, and songwriter, while she studying at the University of Colorado. She has since started producing music under her own name and has two studio albums.
Desire, I Want to Turn Into You has been described as an art pop, alternative pop, and new-age record, with elements of electronic, rock, and trip-hop.
Polachek described herself as “a very hyperactive kid” and said that she would listen to calm her senses. She also said her early exposure to traditional Japanese songs and anime themes was very influential on her musical education. I think you can hear both of these influences in her solo projects.
