Single Review – Chairlift – Ch-Ching

Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly are the Indie Pop duo Chairlift hailing from New York. Back in 2008 and 2011 they were an important cog in the Brooklyn Indie machine, but have not produced anything since Something four years ago. Today they’ve announced the release of their third album Moth January and a new single in ‘Ch-Ching’. This new single marks a change of direction in the four years since their last work and sees the duo try their hand Hip-Hop themed electronica with those moulded harmonies from Polachek that have since been popularized by HAIM. It’s a song that swings from it’s Hip-Hop inspired verses to the Pop melodies of the chorus and a fade out into a hazy electronic bridge. A song that remarkably pulls off the mixture of styles and genres with ease and sheds light an a wider talent that Chairlift might possess if they keep this up.
