Chairlift is a synth-pop act based in Brooklyn, New York. In recent years, they’ve been featured in an iPod commercial, and were nominated for an MTV Video Music Award, yet they still remain fairly unknown in the music world.
The duo, made up of Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly, are set to release their second album Something in late January. After a brief tour with James Blake, Chairlift have revealed their latest single “Sidewalk Safari.” It’s set to open their upcoming album. Check it out below.
In 2010, the band’s future was unclear after original member Aaron Pfenning left in order to pursue a solo career. But Polacheck and Wimberly decided to go on without him, and returned in the summer to release their single “Amanaemonesia.” Chairlift have been on a roll ever since.
