Chairlift Canvas NYC with Visuals for "Crying In Public"
Off her recently released album, Moth, synth-pop duo Chairlift snagged their standout track, "Crying In Public" and released visuals for it... Today! As if the track wasn't already a gem, watch as the uncanny video pans over New York City during an elegant snowfall. The video for "Crying In Public" was directed by Allie Avital with art direction by Caroline Polachek.
When speaking of the track, Chairlift say,
"'Crying In Public' was written about a kind of moment familiar to many New Yorkers, where you’re caught up in all these anxieties that seem huge, and then the smallest gesture from someone who loves you can stop you dead in your tracks, all the bullshit falls away, and you’re suddenly humbled by how overwhelmingly beautiful the world is. It’s the closest we have ever come to writing a devotional."
Fallen in love yet? If you're out in Austin, Chairlift will be kicking off their North American starting at SXSW, continuing to music's most thriving cities including Los Angeles, Chicago, and NYC.
