If you are a regular reader of The Eargazm, you have probably heard a thing or two about CHVRCHES. The Scottish synth-pop trio are a favorite of ours with their soaring, bubble-gum punk brand of tune that seems to have a strangle-hold on music sources all over the internet. CHVRCHES is seemingly soundtracking its own climactic rise in the music kingdom.
“Gun” is yet another example of CHVRCHES ingenuousness. Colorful sonic fireworks explode every which way above Lauren Mayberry‘s sweet, yet fierce, vocals. The trio is rounded out by Iain Cook and Martin Doherty who share duties on both synthesizers and backup vocals.
CHRVCHES only pulls ahead of the field in the crowded world of indie synth pop and may turn out to be the winner of that race. Their sound is an admirable balance music that of incredibly shiny and optimistic while remaining grounded and contagiously heartfelt.
The track along with a few remixes will be available on pink vinyl for all you record heads out there or you can simply stream it below. CHVRCHES will be out with a new album sometime later this year.
