Scottish pop trio CHVRCHES released a remix of MSMR‘s all ready fantastic Hurricane today that, like any good remix, transforms the song into a completely new piece of art. The original version of Hurricane is an introspective, heavier song that has a melancholy feel to it. CHVRCHES took up MSMR offer when she sang “Welcome to the inner workings of my mind”. Except CHVRCHES pulled back the drapes to let some light in the room, blew out the incense and got the party started. It’s really beautiful thing to listen to. Seeing two artists that share a knack for pop wizardy and HATE for lower case letters is a formula that works. This thing is pretty brilliant.
CHVRCHES is riding some pretty surging momentum after their recent release of their EP Recover. The band is currently in Europe playing a few shows before heading on a long tour through America including a few shows in LA and a Lawrence, KS stop at the Granada.
The Brooklyn-London duo MSMR is gearing up toward the release of their new album Secondhand Rapture, which can be streamed on Hype Machine. They are playing a handful of dates including an appearance at Governor’s Ball in New York.
