Single Review - CHVRCHES - The Mother We Share


CHVRCHES debut album The Bones Of What You Believe is one of this year's most anticipated releases.  To precede the album the band are re-releasing their debut single The Mother We Share which was originally issued in 2012 on download and very limited coloured vinyl which, believe me is very hard to find.  This song highlights all that is good about CHVRCHES.  From the samples of Lauren’s voice starting the song, to the Speak & Spell era Depeche Mode meets Yazoo electronics of the verse, to the sheer beauty of the chorus – it’s synthpop perfection.  CHVRCHES just have a knack of doing everything very very well.  We’re lucky to have so much good electronic music coming out of Scotland just now and we’re doubly lucky to have CHVRCHES spearheading it.
