Caroline Polachek reveals her muse for 'So Hot You're Hurting My Feelings' and other obsessions

Caroline Polachek called me from Charlie XCX's guest bedroom in L.A. They are working on "some stuff" together and Caroline says she's obsessed with her. "She's so determined," she reflects in awe.

Caroline Polachek is an obsessive kind of person. Her ode " So Hot Your Hurting My Feelings" gets at that obsession. " Bunny Is a Rider" is an obsession of Bunny's attitude. Through the conversation Polachek shares a couple other obsessions, a perfume from the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona and a song from Alaska Reid. She's surprisingly revealing, even showing me an image that feels so intimate, the background on her phone. She shares who she was thinking of when she wrote "So Hot You're Hurting My Feelings" and even more.
