    Caroline Polachek

    Indie Pop

    Caroline Polachek has already lived an extraordinary life in music: her previous band Chairlift formed in 2006 whilst Caroline was still in art school; and in 2008 the band was thrust into the spotlight when "Bruises" was synched in an iPod commercial as the Brooklyn indie scene peaked as an international export.  Caroline's idiosyncratic vocal style and synth textures quickly became their sonic trademark, and continued to evolve through their three critically acclaimed albums into a new, more modular kind of pop experimentation.  
     
    Caroline expanded into production in 2013, landing her first credit writing and producing on Beyonce's grammy-nominated self-titled album. Restless while making Chairlift's third (and final) record "Moth", Caroline quietly fostered two side projects: baroque girl-group Ramona Lisa, and minimal synth project CEP. Moving fluidly through radically different genres, Caroline collaborated with dozens of artists (Blood Orange, SBTRKT, Charli XCX) ; sometimes writing, sometimes singing, sometimes directing videos, and sometimes all three. 
     
    Chairlift disbanded in 2017 and Caroline feverishly began writing for her first solo project under her own name. For the first time, the DNA from these seemingly different projects fit together perfectly; the playfulness of Chairlift, the theatricality of Ramona Lisa, futuristic glimmerings of CEP, plus a new mastery of her voice and thick rolodex of keen collaborators. 
     
    Fast forward two years spent manically between the studio and navigating a series of personal crossroads, and “Pang” marks the beginning of a new chapter.  It is the most ambitious, hardcore and beautiful album of her career to date. With her signature 'organic autotune' and liquid lyricism finally center stage, the record positions her firmly as one of the most singular and captivating singers of a generation.

    Alternative

    Singer, songwriter, and producer, Lolo Zouaï ("zoo-eye") describes her songs as "bittersweet bangers," combining
    atmospheric electronics, smoky R&B, and elements of hip-hop on her stylish, intimate songs.
    Born in Paris to a French mother and Algerian father, Zouaï moved to the Sunset District of San Francisco 3 months
    after her parents won the Visa lottery. She grew up on a mix of Bay Area Hip-Hop, classic French music, and
    Algerian Rai music. As a child, she took piano lessons and sang at her French elementary school. After graduating
    high school, she spent a semester at Belmont University in Nashville before relocating to New York with her
    mother.
    Following some false starts with collaborations and recordings, Lolo connected with New York producer Stelios
    Phili to create her viral hit with 2017's "High Highs to Low Lows." That same year, she co-wrote a song for H.E.R.'s
    eponymous debut, a record that went on to win the Grammy for Best R&B Album.
    In the summer of 2018, while independently releasing a series of singles including "Blue," "Desert Rose," and
    "Brooklyn Love," Lolo performed sold out headlines in Toronto, New York, LA, Paris, and London. That October, she
    toured in support of Alina Baraz before ending the year with another sold out headline tour in Europe.
    In 2019, Lolo partnered with RCA Records and Because Music to release her debut album "High Highs to Low Lows"
    on April 19th. A week after the album's release, Lolo set out on a 22-city North American headline tour, followed
    by a summer full of festival shows across the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia and a string of appearances at New
    York and Paris Fashion week. A month later, Lolo set out on the 17-city European leg of the High Highs to Low Lows
    tour.
    Since 2019, Lolo has sold out headline shows across 14 different countries and appeared in global campaigns for
    COACH, Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas, Nike, and more.
