Chairlift have announced that they will split after a final run of shows next year. The duo released their third and final album, ‘Moth’, in January this year.
In a statement late last week, they said: “It’s been an incredible ten years as a band, and it blows our minds to be able to say that every goal we had when we started recording in 2006 has been accomplished. We’ve been lucky enough to have the sweetest, coolest, most loyal fans an artist could ask for. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the love and support you’ve given us, for bringing us all over the world, for waiting to meet us after shows, for learning to dance moves, and for singing loudly”.
As for their future plans, they added: “Patrick [Wimberly] will be going on to produce records full-time, and Caroline [Polachek] to make music as a solo artist. The two of us are family at this point, and will undoubtedly turn up on each other’s work in the future, but the time has come to take the next step towards where our passion is pulling us”.
To date, Wimberly’s production credits include Beyonce, Solange, Das Racist and Wet tracks. Polachek released her debut solo album under the name Ramona Lisa in 2014. She also wrote Beyonce’s ‘No Angel’.
