Single Review – Chairlift – Romeo


The Brooklyn Indie Pop duo that are Chairlift have released ‘Romeo’; their second single from their upcoming third album MOTH which is out on January 22nd. After the marvel of the pop fusions and downright arrogant ambitiousness of ‘Ch-ching’, their second single offers up a different tone. With ‘Romeo’ we have competing layers and sounds battling for supremacy around a drum sample and Caroline’s soaring vocals. The song’s energy and rapidity around a streamline song structure make the track sound as if it is in a constant chorus and the switching from industrial soundscapes, to dance, sweeping electronica and rhythmic acoustics keep you on your toes throughout. This single adds validity to suggestions that their third album might be hard to beat throughout the course of 2016.
