Chandeliers are a Chicago-based art-rock group who create a lush form of jazzy, electro rock. Chicago winters can be quite dismal—though notably the last one—and to fight the winter blues Chris Kalis, Scott McGaughey, and Harry Brenner ensconce themselves in a studio and record warm summery jams rather than grim cold weather tunes. Chandeliers draw influence from sources as diverse as Kraftwerk and Herbie Hancock, and perhaps most obviously, Can. Their latest release is Founding Fathers and today we present the online premiere of the psychedelic video for opening track “New Times”. Kalis says, “as far as what I really like in today’s music, I’m into the new.. I’m into that Japanese Funk, that pop-funk, you know I think Prince is the future, among a lot of other things.”
