CHVRCHES – The Mother We Share

Back in May, Glasgow trio Chvrches caused a stir with their debut single Lies. A rollicking electro-throb of a song, it features singer Lauren Mayberry being bashed about by a synth riff the size of a house. Its delirious three and a half minutes left fans excited about what was coming next. Well, what’s next is the slightly softer The Mother We Share, which tempers the monster synth riffs in favour of twinkling keyboards, padded drum claps and a central lyric that lends the whole thing a slightly melancholic edge (“and the mother we share will never keep our cold hearts from thawing”). Bring on the next single.

Glasgow has produced a good many famous musicians/bands over the years; Wet Wet Wet, Belle & Sebastien, Texas, Franz Ferdinand, Mogwai and Travis… as well as one of my favourite bands, ever, Glasvegas.

Just in case you aren’t familiar with Glasvegas, take a listen:
