Yet another group catapulting 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.

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