Chairlift Announce New Album, ‘Moth,’ Share Vibrant ‘Ch-Ching’ Video
On Wednesday (Oct. 14), Chairlift premiered their new single, “Ch-Ching,” on Beats 1, and now, the Brooklyn-based duo have shared a video for the song and announced their upcoming album, Moth.
In the clip, Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek dances her way through New York City, her creative partner in crime, Patrick Wimberly, never too far away. The video was directed by film duo that-go and choreographed by Korie Genius. Check out the results up above.
It’s fitting the “Ch-Ching” video takes place in the streets of NYC, as, during their interview earlier this week, Polachek told Zane Lowe the song is inspired by the band’s adopted hometown.
“This record was very much about the experience of living in New York,” she said. “‘Ch-Ching’ is sort of about that feeling of getting lucky and not realizing what just hit you and rolling with it.”
“Ch-Ching” will appear on the forthcoming Moth, which is due out Jan. 16 via Columbia; check out the cover art below. When it arrives, the album will follow Chairlift’s 2012 sophomore effort, Something, and their 2008 debut, Does You Inspire You.
