It topped year-end lists from Pitchfork, DIY, Exclaim, and DORK, while also ranking highly on Pitchfork and The New York Times’ “Best Albums of 2023” lists and securing spots on The Guardian and Rough Trade’s Best Albums of the year.
Moreover, Polachek’s headline tour, The Spiraling Tour, has seen her perform to sold-out crowds at iconic venues, including Radio City Music Hall and the Sydney Opera House, and she opened for Dua Lipa on the 2022 North American Future Nostalgia Tour.
