Every new release from Chvrches makes us a little nervous. there is so much hype surrounding this Glaswegian ElectroPop trio that we get concerned they won’t be able to live up to expectations. For now, at least, dipping into their third single, Recover, puts to rest any fears and they deliver another stunning slice of moody ElectroPop.
Awash with Numandoid synths, Recover does that thing all the best 80s SynthPop tunes do. Balancing a big, seemingly upbeat, optimistic tune with a melancholy running through it like a tear. Singer Lauren’s frail yet impassioned performance is almost heartbreaking and needs, to a certain extent, to be countered with all the shimmering synth work. We think we if heard the acapella we might cry. This prefect blend of optimism and pain is evident in, literally, every classic SynthPop act there is and Chvrches are on a fast track to joining some of them, we just hope all the hype doesn’t ruin it all.
