From NPR Music:
Yet another band that’s catapulted into the public eye via a catchy iPod jingle, Chairlift quickly built a substantial reputation on the pop scene of the late 2000s. The electronic pop group originated as a duo at the University of Colorado and then relocated to Brooklyn. Hear Chairlift perform live in concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live.
Though frequently compared to other heavily electronic groups such as MGMT and Yeasayer, Chairlift has a sound that’s far sweeter in comparison. The band’s debut album, Does You Inspire You?contained the aforementioned jingle, “Bruises,” and showcased Chairlift’s multilayered, versatile electronic sound. The band’s upcoming sophomore record is entitled Something.
