After selling out the Borderline in record time, we are pleased to announce that Chairlift will be playing a headline show at London’s Scala.
Early architects of the current chillwave scene, Brooklyn duo CHAIRLIFT’s early stated aims included making music for haunted houses, an apt intention for their ethereal sound.
Coming to the attention of the masses after their single Bruises was used on an iPod ad the band have built up a much-deserved cult following.
Chairlift’s new album ‘Something’ will be released on 23rd January on Young Turks. It is the first album since founding member Aaron Pfenning left the band in 2010.
‘[First track Sidewalk Safari] is unabashedly the group’s first real attempt at a big, bright pop song, albeit one cloaked in some typically strange peripheral sounds, the intro building into a galloping bass-rattke reminiscent of Stereolab, from a sonic squiggle of decaying synths.’ – The Guardian
‘check out Patrick Wimberly’s undulating vintage keys, the snaking collage of exotic beats, and Caroline Polacheck’s wicked vocal performance, which alternates between Top 40 sparkle and prog rock. Even the outro sounds like the disintegrating soundtrack to a ’70s B-movie.’ – Billboard
