We’re already plenty impressed with Brooklyn-based Chairlift. This band (and its swoony front-woman Caroline Polachek) has been releasing quality synth-pop – the kind that is sweet, but isn’t too sugary – for almost six years now.
Evidently though, Chairlift won’t rest until they’ve knocked our little socks off, because they’ve just released a Japanese version of ‘I Belong in Your Arms’ from their Something album.
Polachek spent much of her childhood in Tokyo, so along with the album’s release in Japan they figured it was logical for her to re-record the song with Japanese lyrics. Coupled with a fabulously camp karaoke-style video, this song is a total treat.
Chairlift, why you so charming?
