    Chairlift Explains How Their Album Title Went From 'Peach' to 'Moth'

    The duo also lets us know what they listen to in their spare time

    A couple weeks ago, the Brooklyn duo Chairlift dropped Moth, the long-awaited, self-produced follow-up to 2012's Something. Caroline Polachek originally wanted to call it Peach, but Patrick Wimberly disagreed and they ended up with Moth.

    But why? "Moths are things that are relentless and sort of poetic romantics," Polachek tells FM. "They fly towards something beautiful at all costs."

    Below, watch Chairlift talk about what they listen to at home—you'll be surprised. If you're ready for more, you can see the duo explain their ideal places for fans to listen to Moth right here.
