Chairlift

Score

Planet Health

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.
