Confirming once more that Brooklyn is the Mecca of the musical Earth, Chairlift join Glass Candy in lowering the BPM and heightening the gloss of modern dance-pop. Lounging in flagrant ’80s bass like one of Ladyhawke’s cats on heat, Caroline Polachek croons “Our intercourse was well-protected/We made love with each other’s eyes”, imagining a utopian, germ-free future. Following Saint Etienne’s breathiest moments, it piles on layers of superficiality until you’re wallowing in sheeny depth. Five-a-day of what they’re having, please.
