“Smoke” is one of the standout songs from Polachek’s most recent album, Desire, I Want to Turn Into You, which has been hailed as one of the best releases of 2023 and is currently ranked first on Metacritic’s Top Albums of 2023. Polachek sings in the video, “You are melting everything about me.” Don’t be concerned about me. It’s all vapor. And the aftermath doesn’t bother me. Please take a gunshot for my child. I know the one thing that will save me.”
