chairlift - "crying in public" / by Zack Free

this song is the crown jewel of chairlift’s bittersweet swan song, moth. it’s thoughtfully written, carefully produced, and gorgeously performed, putting caroline polachek’s incredible, imogen heap-esque vocal talents on full display. she sobs through the chorus like nobody’s watching, but suddenly becomes aware, whispering a mantra directly into your ear: “love will be the bridge
/over the sand”. it’s the kind of self-realization that’s hard to contain
