Chairlift had the unfortunate distinction of being a sales pitch for iPod’s Nano last year. And although the commercial garnered them much attention it may have also created the impression of a one-hit wonder. The video for “Evident Utensil” tries to dispel these notions with some darker hues and trippy post-production. (via Pitchfork TV)
