WATCH: Ski Lift - 'Portal'

Really really digging this one. Portal from Ski Lift is a two-minute burst of glorious indie-pop. I defy you to not sing/clap/sway along to this one. The first of a trio of tracks to be released this Spring, the track is the follow-up to their debut single Comfortable Here from 2019. Starting in late 2018 as the writing and recording project of Welsh songwriter Benji Tranter, he is joined by Ailsa Tully on bass and Jovis Lane on drums. Excited to hear more!

On Portal, Benji shares: "It's a love song to nature, but also a peacemaking process with my new hometown of Croydon - having grown up in the beautiful countryside of the welsh border, I have always found the transition between city and country to be a strange and bewildering thing to experience. But I have learned over the years that you can find vibrant energy in the fields and forests, and peace and solitude in the midst of a bustling city, if you look for it."
