Lorely Rodriguez, known to all of us as Empress Of, is still new to my mind. Despite this, the combination of Chairlift and Empress Of seems like a natural on paper. Rodriguez is a gifted producer that adds some real intrigue and nuance to Chairlift’s racing original. It’s a slower, more cerebral song with the use of space and The clockwork harp-like notes oscillating around most of the song remind me of Chrono Trigger.
Chairlift’s new album, Moth, is out now via Columbia.
