Hear Chairlift’s Beautiful ‘Moth’ Cut “Crying In Public”

Chairlift have shared another Moth cut following “Ch-Ching” and “Romeo,” but where those were frantic digi-pop freakouts, “Crying In Public” is a sumptuous space ballad.

A rubbery groove drives the song, but Caroline Polachek‘s chorus provides the emotional punch as she sings “I’m sorry I’m crying in public this way / I’m falling for you, I’m falling for you / I’m sorry I’m causing a scene on the train, I’m falling for you, I’m falling for you.”

We recently spoke to the Brooklyn duo about the new album, and here’s what Polachek said about the track:

“This song is about a little thing that someone can say that will suddenly make all the crap in your life that you’re so obsessed with that’s stressing you out and giving you anxiety, all of that falls away in a second and you realize how important this person is to you. Or how beautiful life is and how you’ve been a total idiot with your head up your own ass for the last week and you feel humble and sorry and small and awake, all of a sudden.”

Moth is out January 22. Hear the beautiful song below.
