A bit late but I finally hopped on the Chvrches bandwagon. Holy shit, how good is this band? I know they had some catchy tunes a while ago but I never bothered listening to the rest of their discography. It was only after a Song Exploder episode where they broke down Clearest Blue I decided to listen to the rest of their songs. And man, I was blown away. I don’t have much to say other than this band has some of the catchiest synth pop beats and melodies I’ve had the pleasure of listening to.
Dark, moody, atmospheric and at times uplifting, energetic without being over the top. Also, some of their songs would fit in a Hotline Miami soundtrack (Lies anyone?). They’re also currently working on their third album which I’m looking forward to. In the meantime, feast your ears on these tracks:
Chvrches – Clearest Blue
Chvrches – The Mother We Share
Chvrches – Recover
Chvrches – Empty Threat
Chvrches – Playing Dead
Chvrches – NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
