Chvrches – Leave a trace (2015)
Chvrches 2013 début The Bones of What You Believe was a most triumphant, splendid and effervescent slice of bittersweet scots synth pop symphonies,making everything else released that year sound like stale shit on a stick.*
(*not entirely true, use of hyperbole should be taken with a tonne** of salt.)-(**i’m just exaggeratin! a tonne??!!no,a pinch will do mind, watch the cholesterol)
If Irn-Bru made electronic pop that could make both dance and cry, then it might sound a bit like this but maybe with less artificial flavourings, sugar because it is a bit too much though if I’m being honest, I may be pushing the stereotypical Scottish cultural signifiers a bit far mind.
Any road, ‘Leave a Trace’ is the second single from Chvrches upcoming sophomore album entitled Every Open Eye, released on September 25th through Virgin/Glassnote through iTunes, Spotify, the bands website and the usual crowd. delivery systems.
