New: CHVRCHES – “Recover”

The latest track from Glasgow electro-pop outfit Chvrches feels less derivative than the first two tracks we’d seen from them. Though the reminders of Purity Ring, Grimes and other “dark but catchy” electronic artists are still there, the experience of “Recover” is undiminished by the hints of influence. Ultimately, it’s a song that “goes for it,” and succeeds.

This is the title track off their upcoming debut EP, which will be out March 26 in the States via Glassnote.
