NEW MUSIC: CHVRCHES - "THE MOTHER WE SHARE"
Chvrches burst onto the scene back in the spring with their debut track "Lies" that slammed heavy synth leanings into crunching beats and electro menace. We blogged about the Glaswegian trio back in August (check out the review here) and since then the teaming of Iain Cook, Lauren Mayberry and Martin Doherty have made it onto the BBC Sound of 2013 longlist. Quite an achievement in one year. Chvrches official release "The Mother We Share" nuzzles against softer sentiments; a cloudy thoroughfare of synth-glitter vocals, shimmering electro breezes and melting keys that reminds us of Avec Sans and San Cisco. Mayberry's vocals gleam vibrantly over a refreshing instrumental backdrop providing rock solid pop credentials for future endeavours. If the band keep up this effort of cute, reflective melodies every corner of the world will be smothered in cloudy realms of pop. We love this latest offering from Scotland's new kids of electro-pop and absolutely cannot wait for the next cut. Visit the band's Facebook and view the music video below.
