Filmed in her apartment, Caroline Polachek directed and edited the visual herself so the band could be at their most natural. The video was shot by DP Ashley Connor, who also worked on “Crying In Public,” and colored by Adam McClelland, who directed the “Making Moth” mini documentary.
“I wanted to make one last Chairlift video, and ‘Polymorphing’ is a favorite of ours- perhaps the most ‘us’ song of our last album. It’s the least conceptual video we’ve ever made; there’s no datamoshing or dance moves or foreign language translation — just a toast to our fans, to our friends, to the city, and to constant change! And yes, there is actually toast in the video,” says Caroline Polachek.
The American synthpop duo had announced late last year that they will be breaking up after 12 years of phenomenal music. The band had formed under the proposition of producing background music for haunted houses, but the project soon evolved, eventually opening for big name acts like the Killers, Phoenix and MGMT.
The band had announced their breakup on the band’s Twitter page, along with the explanation that there will be some final tour dates this spring. If you had been a Chairlift fan, don’t miss this opportunity to catch one last show of theirs before the name is retired forever.
Check out the video for “Polymorphing” and some upcoming tour dates below.
