INTERVIEW: CHAIRLIFT IN TOKYO
Caroline, you lived in Japan until you were six. Do you feel you still have some strange subconscious connection to this country? POLACHEK: Hite! Yeah, it’s really cool to be back, cause all the things you notice when you are an adult—like the way the streets are laid out, the sense of humor, or the way people dress—you don’t notice that when you are a kid. You just pay attention to candy wrappers, flowers, animals and illustrations. But the textures of things here—fabrics, ceramics, and gold embroidery—all those things trigger all sorts of feelings. It feels really natural to be here in a way.
