Colorado-based Chairlift are anything but your average electro-pop outfit, I mean, have you seen lead singer Caroline Polachek’s mind and body-bending, Thom Yorke and Robyn-rivalling dance-off in that ‘Amananaemonesia’ video?
Popping up on the reverse side of an out-now vinyl version of ‘Amananaemonesia’ is new song ‘Peculiar Paradise’, which the band have elected to give away via RCRD LBL for the bargain fee of $0.
Like its name, ‘Peculiar Paradise’ is unusual, unearthly and lush in fluttering fronds of 80s-inspired industrial beats and some truly divine pop melodies. Risking a backlash from Michael Jackson devotees; at its finest, most unruly moments it runs on a ridiculous funk flex worthy of comparisons to a psyched-out, ‘Bad’ era MJ. Basically, it’s great.
