Chairlift – “Romeo”
Last month, Brooklyn pop-mutation specialists Chairlift announced the impending release of Moth, their third album, and they shared the video for their slick, impressive first single “Ch-Ching.” But if that song had you worried that Chairlift were through being weird, then their new track “Romeo” should be some consolation. The song is a giddy melodic splurge that the band claims is written from the perspective of the Greek mythological figure Atalanta, a virgin huntress raised by a bear after her king father abandoned her as a baby. Listen to the giddy, squelchy track below, via Pitchfork.
Moth is out 1/22 on Columbia.
