Yet another band that's catapulted into the public eye via a catchy iPod jingle, Chairlift is new to the pop scene, but it's quickly building a substantial reputation. The electronic pop trio originated at the University of Colorado and recently relocated to Brooklyn. Hear Chairlift perform live in concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live.

Though frequently compared to other heavily electronic groups such as MGMT and Yeasayer, Chairlift has a sound that's far sweeter in comparison. The band's debut album (Does You Inspire You?) contains the aforementioned jingle, "Bruises," and showcases Chairlift's multilayered, versatile electronic sound.
