Is This Chvrches’ Best Song Yet?


Jul 16, 2015

The sophomore slump is a real thing in music, but good news — Chvrches doesn’t have anything to worry about, at least not judging from their slick new single. The Scottish trio released the first track off their forthcoming second album Every Open Eye this afternoon, and “Leave A Trace” reflects a darker, deeper twist on the Chvrches we already know and love.

The glimmery clip hops, skips, and jumps throughout a spacey soundscape, blending the band’s signature electro pop sound with ethereal vocals from lead singer (and possible real-life angel) Lauren Mayberry. Although it’s easy to feel impatient considering it’s been a two-year wait since their debut LP, The Bones of What You Believe, this sneak peek shows it was all worth it.

Listen above, then mark your calendar for September 25, when Every Open Eye drops on Glassnote Records.
