We think it’s about time everyone got to know about Caroline Polachek, the Beyoncé-affiliated songwriter and super-cool vocalist of Brooklyn synth-pop pair, Chairlift. Here are five reasons why she's ace:
With the festive period now closed for business, Polachek’s penchant for oversized shirts and monochrome, plus her signature badger stripe of blonde hair, make for great January style inspiration. No wonder Vogue snapped her tour wardrobe.
In demand from everyone from Beyoncé to Blood Orange (her vocals on Chamakay = sublime), Polachek’s collaborations are everywhere. She’s also pretty chameleon-like in her ability to switch up her styles, like in this track with Spanish dance-pop act Delorean.
If RiRi’s Barbados antics are turning you green with envy, Polachek’s Instagram is a breath of fresh air. Her feed is all cool architecture, art galleries and nature. It looks like 2014 = time to get cultured.
