Chairlift - Met Before
Synth poppy goodness. Not often do I really pay attention to it, and I am no great John Hughes fan, with all his 80’s poppy teen drama wankage that this type of music is so at home with (I’m personally reminded of). But, this song is catchy as hell, the lead singer is a total babe, and in general the new and improved standard of synth pop nowadays blows the rest of its predecessors out of the water. The bassline and drums are pretty killer. This song captures the charm and whatever coolness existed in the 80’s pop culture nicely. It just had to be done right. This is right for me. I’ve been on and off with these guys lazily, but I’ve come full circle now. This is from their new album ‘Something’ released this year.
