Chairlift Moth on LP + Download
Moth is Chairlift's third studio album. Moth was written and produced by the Chairlift duo - comprised of writer/producers and multi-instrumentalists Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly - over the course of two years in the band's own studio, which they built in an old pharmaceutical factory in Brooklyn, NY.
Throughout the recording process, Patrick and Caroline both pursued other recording projects and collaborations - from Caroline penning a song for Beyonce and collaborating with SBTRCT and Blood Orange, to Patrick producing for Solange and Wet. Alongside these collaborations, Moth was born. It has strong pop and R&B leanings, but pared with their own distinctly Chairlift style, and led by Caroline's flawless and expressive vocals.
The result is Chairlift's most commercial-sounding album to date. An evolution from their last album, 2012's Something, Moth is a very New York City inspired album. Listeners can expect to be led through an aural mix of big, rich pop inspired hooks, vibrating bass, lively brass and sensuous R&B inspired vocals, all anchored in the duo's meticulously crafted instrumentation.
