Track of the Day: CHVRCHES – Gun

Throughout the smattering of singles of theirs we’ve heard already, Glasgow three-piece CHVRCHES present a darker take on the electronica we’ve seen recently, building upon foundations laid by Grimes and Purity Ring but still possessing undoubtable mainstream appeal.

‘Gun’ is no different, yet opens up further sunshine into the band’s palette. This is pop, plain and simple. Yet it’s not so simple. Bass bubbles away sumptuously and yet again Lauren Mayberry sounds perfectly sugar-coated, surrounded by stabs of synth and subtle, delayed guitar. Grab your hairbrush, get in front of your full-length mirror and take five minutes to yourself, cos this is utterly charming.

No word yet on what is sure to be a corker of a debut album, but ‘Gun’ is due out on 15th July. Listen to it below.
