Chandeliers drink the same Chicagoland water that hydrates fellow hyperrhythmic abstract electronic pop groups like Mahjongg and Lazer Crystal. This water turns the vibraphone of late-90s Chicago post-rock into a synth, and adds a phat trigger to every drum. Chandeliers' debut album The Thrush was recently released on Pickled Egg
(UK), and on the group's own Obey Your Brain imprint (co-run by Griffin of Icy Demons, also home to Man Man and Need New Body). - Jason Sigal 2008
"A cut from the lost Zapp album that was produced by Chris Carter, ‘Whip the Gift’ is ethereal, mournful robo-soul at its ghost-in-the-shell finest... it is surely a beauteous thing indeed. But it is not all machine-grievance, the Chandeliers part of the EP also contains the guaranteed boogie-splice euphoria of ‘Sugarscoop’ – which is not leaving 20JFG’s bone encrusted DJ box for the foreseeable future." - 20jazzfunkgreats music blog.
