ENS Interviews Chairlift

chairlift ENS Interviews Chairlift
In advance of their date last week supporting Peter, Bjorn, and John, we were able to talk with Aaron Pfenning from Chairlift about playing here in Cincinnati, the Brooklyn music scene, and what it means to be an artist in 2009 and beyond.

ENS: So you guys are coming through Cincinnati, actually playing just across the river in Newport, Kentucky and the Historic Southgate House.

Pfenning: Yeah, I remember the last time we came through Cincinnati, we ended up on that side of the river too, and we were like, “What the fuck are we doing in Kentucky?” But, all things considered it seemed pretty nice and we’re really looking forward to coming through again.

ENS: You all moved out to Brooklyn a couple of years ago from Colorado. So, why the move?

: Well, we moved for several reasons. First and foremost, Caroline [Polachek, fellow member of Chairlift] got into art school out here in New York, so I decided to come out here with her. But, the main reason we came here is because we were trying to find like-minded musicians in Colorado, but struggled to do so. We ended up in Brooklyn in a really great circle of friends and musicians, collaborating with several artists, and things have blossomed from there.

ENS: There are just a ton of new bands and artists springing up, particularly from the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn. Do you feel a certain collective energy being there?

Pfenning: Definitely. I think part of it depends on how much you throw yourself into it, but there is definitely something going on here that you can’t quite put your finger on. From an outside perspective, I think it tends to be romanticized a bit because that’s kind of the nature of art and music. But what people don’t realize is that these artists and musicians work so hard to get where they are.

Take Yeasayer, one of my favorite bands and good friends. They have all worked so hard at their craft to get to where they are, which inspires me and others around them to want to work harder. It’s a bit of a hip-hop attitude towards work around here. All we want to do is work, whether that’s recording, producing, or playing. We’re kind of like a bunch of Lil Waynes (chuckles).

ENS: Relating to that, and the future of music, have you all thought about the way you put out your music? With the internet being such a prevalent taste maker, have you or Chairlift as a band thought about the release structure and getting your music out to the public?

Pfenning: Right now, the music industry is shaping into a form that no one can predict. It’s a really exciting time, and also a really scary time, to be a musician. We have no idea where this thing is going to go. Personally, I really appreciate the rebirth of vinyl. But also, digital downloads are more popular than ever. Our focus is really on making as much music as possible and playing live shows, and letting the industry take things where it may want to go. We don’t have the luxury of being at the forefront the way a band like Radiohead does. We’re certainly keeping our eye on things though.

Chairlift is out on tour right now, see all of their upcoming tour dates after the jump…..
