Critically acclaimed pop duo Chairlift has released new music in the form of the infinitely danceable “Ch-Ching.” The R&B laced, vibrating drum infused pop track serves as the first musical offering from their forthcoming album Moth, which will be released in January 2016 via Columbia Records. Although the single is the first work to be released from Chairlift in three years, the duo – comprised of writer/producers and multi-instrumentalists Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly – has hardly been quiet. They collaborated with Beyoncé on her groundbreaking self-titled album via the track “No Angel,” which was written and produced by Caroline and co-produced by Patrick. Caroline released and toured Arcadia, a self-produced solo album under the alias Ramona Lisa and collaborated with SBTRKT, Blood Orange and others, while Patrick produced and collaborated with artists such as Solange Knowles, Wet, Kelela, and Tei Shi.
An evolution from their last album, 2012’s Something, Moth proves to be an emotionally uninhibited and markedly stronger, more pop inspired body of work. A very New York City inspired album, listeners can expect to be led through an aural mix of big, rich pop inspired hooks, vibrating bass, lively brass and sensuous R&B inspired vocals, all anchored in the duo’s meticulously crafted instrumentation.
Née is the brainchild of charismatic front-woman Kristin Dennis. Combined with drummer Mic Boshans and multi-instrumentalist David Beeman, the band blends pop hooks with dusty church organs, hand-claps with heartbreaks while spinning tales of whisky nights and mornings after with a deft and compelling lyricism.
Beginning as a bedroom project for Dennis, the first EP, The Hands of Thieves, arrived as a product of mysterious destiny. Now with the backing of a band and full instrumentation at their disposal, Née's newest release, Finches (02/01/13), is louder, bolder, blending pop hooks with distorted guitars and driving beats. Much dancing.
Née is currently in the process of completing Née's follow up EP to be released in the spring of 2012 on 10" vinyl. The band is currently pursuing larger-scale opportunities, but plans to forge ahead with the next release via the wave of support and interest generated by The Hands of Thieves.
