[Audio] Chvrches’ ‘Get Away’

The last week or so has been a bit of a treat in regards to new material from Glaswegian ElectroPoppers Chvrches. This evening Zane Lowe premièred new tune Get Away on his Radio 1 show. Get Away is taken from a Lowe curated new, alternate, soundtrack to 2011 “oh look everybody, there’s this thing called SynthWave!” movie Drive. The new version of the film will be shown on BBC3 on 30th October with the option (fingers on the Red Button!) to switch between soundtracks; which, for all our Drive-themed cynicism, is actually pretty neat.

Get Away puts to bed any fears that Chvrches (like so many before them) will abandon ElectroPop after their first record. It’s a swirling synth epic that nicely nods in the general direction of it’s Dreamwave predecessors. A particularly pounding beat of subby kicks and snappy snares underpins a fog of rich pads and Chvrches now-trademark razor sharp leads while Lauren’s typically heartfelt performance dominates the song. Very nice indeed.

While you’re here, check out another new Chvrches tune. As yet formally untitled, the band have been announcing it under the guises of various US comedians. So far it’s been reported to have the titles of ‘Gene Wilder’, ‘Eddie Murphy’; and in this instance (lifted from Austin City Limits Music Festival) ‘Richard Pryor’.
