New Music // Chvrches – Recover

6 Feb

The Scottish electropop band Chvrches are continuing their excellent run of track releases with their latest, Recover.

Cascading synths hold up Lauren Mayberry's pixy falsetto during a bright and bubbly verse before making an emotional shift into a more melancholy chorus filled with plaintive longing. It's another excellent pop song by a band that's quickly becoming one of the most exciting new sounds of 2013.


New Music // Chvrches

Chvrches are a promising new electropop band from Glasgow, Scotland comprised of Iain Cook, Martin Doherty, and Lauren Mayberry.

They’ve released two tracks so far, Lies and The Mother We Share, and both are excellent electropop singles, each showing quality songcraft. Sharing a lot of similarities with other newcomers Purity Ring, but with a more upbeat tempo and tone, Churches seem like a band on the verge of something pretty exciting.

I’ll post further news about their upcoming debut album as it comes. For now, here are the two tracks so far…
