Chairlift "Evident Utensil"
Fine arts, film, jazz, and faux gothic architecture inform the work of Chairlift on its forthcoming debut full-length, Does You Inspire You. Oh, and the '80s. The three-piece Brooklyn-based outfit pays homage to that particular decade with high-pitched synth melodies and poppy vocals that don't sound as though they were made by a group of unassuming kids originally from Colorado. They're currently hashing tunes off the album out in the live setting, on a tour with weirdo-rock master Ariel Pink. Does You Inspire You will be available on October 28.
