mp3: Chairlift – ‘Met Before’

Sounding like the bereaved love-child of Nico and Arcade Fire’s Régine Chassagne, Brooklyn’s synth-duo Chairlift are an unashamedly cool homage to the musical bombast of the 80s.

‘Met Before’ is a track taken from their forthcoming second album Something, and the anthemic chorus on show here is reason enough to further explore their ascent into the synth-pop rafters.

Something is out 23/1/12 in the UK via Young Turks; and 24/1/12 in the U.S. via Columbia
