If you have not yet heard Chairlift’s single, “Bruises,” I would venture it’s safe to say that you don’t own an iPod. Bruises was selected as the unofficial campaign song for Apple’s fourth generation iPod Nano. Since the commercial debuted, Chairlift’s electronic music has blown the eff up.
I just trudged through a mile’s worth of two day old mud to get to the Queen of the Valley stage. I kind of look like I had an “accident” in my white denim shorts to be candid. Meanwhile, holy sh*t. Singer and synth player Caroline Polachek of Chairlift is fucking hot in her fitted black romper. I am so awkward and she defies hipster hotness.
Indeed it is a hipster crowd sprinkled with mislead people who are wondering why Chairlift’s music is infinitely more psychadelic than Bruises implies. No one is really dancing but no one from Brooklyn ever really dances. You just kind of bend your knees and provide the illusion that you’re dancing. Juuust like they way you provide the illusion you’re not having fun.
Bruises comes on and not only does Caroline’s voice absolutely chime and shine but everyone else finally chimes in too.
The band recently released the official music video for their song, “Bruises” and has been on a rather grueling tour that will continue after All Points West and venture into the Midwest. In September Chairlift will start touring with dance pop favorite Phoenix.
