Caroline Polachek Shares Video for “Bunny Is a Rider,” Announces Tour

The events of 2020 halted many artists’ plans, especially tours. Caroline Polachek was one of those artists, unable to tour in support of her acclaimed 2019 album Pang, which made our list of the best pop albums of that year. Last week, Polachek shared the bubbly, poppy new single “Bunny Is a Rider,” her first musical contribution of 2021. Today (July 26), Polachek shares its accompanying video and announces her long-awaited tour, scheduled for this fall.

The video, directed by frequent collaborator Matt Copson, features Polachek navigating a maze of shipping boxes as the camera chases her, playing along with the song’s message of being unavailable. ”’Bunny Is A Rider’ takes place in the storage facility of my mind,” Polachek says in a statement. “In this labyrinth, the camera is the Minotaur, but I’m the Matador so it’s game on. But like I said before, I can teleport.”

In addition to the video is a North American tour with a one-off London date, which begins at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and includes several festival performances throughout September and October.
