Caroline Polachek has announced a second London show taking place later this month.

The American singer-songwriter resumed performances in August with her biggest ever solo headline gig at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

Now she has announced a second UK show at Islington Assembly Hall on October 27, before taking to the stage at Camden’s Roundhouse the next day.

The former Chairlift singer will be supported by London duo Jockstrap at the Islington show, and French musician Oklou in Camden.

Following the London gigs Polachek will embark on a North American tour, starting in San Francisco and finishing up in Santa Cruz.

In 2022 she also will join Megan Thee Stallion on Dua Lipa’s ‘Future Nostalgia’ tour from February through to April.

Polachek returned this summer with her new single ‘Bunny Is A Rider’, which followed her 2019 album ‘Pang’, her third solo record and the first released under her real name, having previously performed under the moniker Ramona Lisa.

In a recent interview with The New Yorker, Polachek reflected on the challenge of returning to performing.

“I had completely forgotten how to be a body in front of a crowd,” she said. 

“You do shows on Instagram Live, but you’re just a picture on a screen. I thought, I don’t think I can live up to this. I don’t think I can hold this moment down.”

At her LA comeback show, she was joined by collaborators Charli XCX and Christine and the Queen, having featured on Charli’s album ‘Pop 2’ and Christine’s EP ‘La Vita Nuova’.

In September, fans speculated that the trio might be working on a track together when Charli XCX posted an image of the three artists posing in what was potentially a music video. The caption read: “a perfect shape”.
