New Chairlift Video – “Ch-Ching”
Caroline Polachek is a Brooklyn-based songwriter and vocalist for Chairlift. She released her debut solo album, Arcadia under her stage name Ramona Lisa, which was released on April 2014 via Terrible Records.
We LOVED her solo project Ramona Lisa. It was one of the years best and most underrated albums for sure. We are not as big fan´s of this new song. Caroline sings as good as always and does her fantastic dance moves, but honestly, her Ramona Lisa stuff is miles better than this in our opinion. Chairlift’s third album Moth will be out in January 2016 via Columbia.
A few days ago Chairlift shared their first new material since that epic Beyonce collaboration “No Angel” in 2013, and “Ch-Ching” definitely sounds like working with the R&B superstar rubbed off on Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly. The song is full of their signature wobbly pop genius, but also jam-packed with brass flourishes and whole swathes of breathy harmonies that pay homage to Beyoncé’s signature style. Taking the influence a bit further, Caroline Polachek is decked out in this incredible mod take on a construction worker costume and dancing around industrial parts of New York in the new video for the clip. The video was directed and filmed by that-go — with creative direction from Chairlift — and doubles down on the same limitless joy and exuberance that the song contains. Watch below. [via SteroGum]
