Video of the Moment #728: Chairlift

By on Tuesday, 6th March 2012 at 6:00 pm

Thought only Arcade Fire was cool enough to have an interactive video? (Recall the fun ‘We Used to Wait’ that pulled up your old hometown and let you explore it from the air. See what Chairlift‘s done now (or rather director Jordan Fish) with ‘Met Before’. Similar to those great Choose Your Own Adventure books that I and I’m sure some of you grew up with, this interactive video lets you choose the path of the players within it. Watch and play with it below.

Last we heard from Chairlift, they were busy releasing a double A-sided 7″, ‘Amanaemonesia’ (previous Video of the Moment here) / ‘Peculiar Paradise’ (previous MP3 of the Day here). Last month, the band did a finger-snapping live performance of ‘Ghost Tonight’, a song off their forthcoming album, for Black Cab Sessions. Enjoy it below.

So far the only gig in the UK Chairlift have lined up on a supposed ‘world tour’ is the 6th of March at London Borderline. We’ll keep you posted with further gigs if/as they’re announced.

Chairlift, the Brooklyn band that brought us the great ‘Bruises’, have unveiled a new video for the very hard to pronounce ‘Amanaemonesia’. It’s kind of like an artsy karaoke video; watch it below and you’ll see what I mean.
