Must Hear: I Belong In Your Arms – Chairlift

Formed in Boulder, Colorado in 2005 and now based in Brooklyn, New York, Chairlift is an indie duo (formerly trio) that is slated to be the next big thing in synthpop/electronic music a la MGMT. They’re off to a good start, having been signed by Columbia Records, who released the band’s second full length album, Something, in January 2002.

I Belong Your Arms is the third track on Something, and while I’m not sure if it’s slated to be released as a single, it certainly should. Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly, the duo that is Chairlift, have created a song that, despite it’s name, is not only far from cheesy it’s fun, catchy and, according to the guys at Pitchfork, one of the band’s big hits at SXSW. It certainly makes me want to see them perform live so that I can sing along.
