The Song From the New iPod Nano Commercial: Chairlift, "Bruises"

Song of the Day: Who's Singing That iPod Nano Commercial?


If you haven't seen the commercial for the new iPod Nano yet, you probably will soon (and probably over and over again, at that). And you might find yourself wondering, like I always seem to do these days with Apple ads, "Wow, who is singing that cute and catchy song?" Once upon a time, the Nano made Feist a star, and it feels like just yesterday I was downloading Yael Naim after seeing the MacBook Air ads airing between my favorite shows.

So who's the lucky band who will soon be getting lots of attention? Why, it's the Brooklyn-based trio Chairlift, whose song "Bruises" is upbeat and bubbly in the avant-pop tradition and overflows with adorable lyrics ("I tried to do headstands for you" — or is it "I tried to do handstands for you"? Either way, cute!). The song is on Chairlift's 2008 debut album, Does You Inspire You, and the trio will be opening for Yeasayer soon (see dates here).

You can listen to the full version of the song here and check out a live performance of the same tune if you

I don't know whose job it is to pick the songs for iPod commercials, but they rock my world. I have loved them all. I've had an iPod for a long time, so not really making me run out and buy a new iPod. But it does make me head to iTunes to find the song :).

i think that Apple is really good at debuting new artists - they do it a lot in their commercials and we all get the catchy tunes in our head. i think that artists should be thrilled with the exposure that they get from it - and roll with it. i'm sure that chairlift will get even more hype now that we're going to see the commercials all over the place.
