Chairlift: Ch-Ching

Indie-pop duo Chairlift is back with fiery new material—leaving their nostalgic, chill synth vibes behind. Their single “Ch-Ching” is our first preview of their album Moth, two years in the works and due out January. The lyrics take inspiration from when Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek had the opportunity to write music for Beyoncé’s eponymously titled 2013 album, which became the track “No Angel.” The very danceable “Ch-Ching” is infectious—as are the moves featured in the music video—but more excitingly, it signals a transformation for Chairlift as they experiment with new sound and production. Call it the Beyoncé effect.
