Caroline Polachek provided the original music for the video. She is the singer, composer and producer of the New York based experimental pop ensemble, Chairlift. In 2008 an unexpected iPod commercial propelled the group onto a 16-month tour and a deal with Columbia Records. Chairlift has since served as a cross-platform outlet for Caroline's videos, choreography and graphic design which is inspired by the interaction of technology, emotion and movement. Most recently she produced the track "No Angel" for Beyonce's latest album, released in December.
