The Chain Gang of 1974 Unveils New Video Featuring Alisa Xayalith

The Chain Gang of 1974 has released a new video for “Forget” featuring The Naked and Famous’ own Alisa Xayalith. The song is an explosively emotive duet, built beautifully upon Chain Gang’s trademark, simplistically punchy percussion and melodies as cohesively meshed as the vocalists carrying them. The video is equally affecting, a blue-tinged tale of movement choreographed by Lindsey Blafarb, who has worked with the likes of Lorde, Cee Lo Green, Nicki Minaj and more.


Primary mastermind behind the synth-pop project, Kamtin Mohager, explains: “‘Forget’ is possibly one of the most important songs to me as a songwriter, solely based on its complexity. Compared to my previous work, I hadn’t written something with such layers… While writing FELT, Peter Gabriel’s ‘So’ was my biggest influence. With that being said, I wanted a song like ‘Don’t Give Up.’ It only seemed appropriate to have a duet with Alisa. It turned out better than I could’ve ever imagined.” The Chain Gang of 1974 released full-length album Felt earlier this summer to critical delight.
