It’s been a minute since we’ve heard new material from Chvrches – although, to be fair, they’ve held us over with a cover of the Game of Thrones theme and a MS MR remix – but now we’ve got a proper new track from the Scottish synth-pop trio. “Gun” is yet another instantly gratifying morsel of bright synths, chipper ’80s dance pulses and sneakily emotive lyrics. As always, Lauren Mayberry‘s vocals are frosty yet welcoming, but this time there’s the addition of some M83-like background ooohs from her male counterparts near the end.
“Gun” will be released as a single on July 15 in the UK. No word yet on whether it’ll appear on the band’s forthcoming full-length. Hear it below. More »
