They’re back! Scottish electro-pop trio CHVRCHES (Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook and Martin Doherty) have unleashed an explosive new single – their first since the 2015 release of their critically acclaimed second album Every Open Eye.
‘Get Out’ is an electrifying pop corker that sees the band sound brighter than ever before whilst still maintaining their powerful storytelling abilities. Produced by the 2017 and 2018 GRAMMY Producer Of The Year, Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia), the new single burns from vulnerable melodies into soaring dark-pop and snappy electronica.
“Working with Greg was so different to what we’d done before, but it also felt so comfortable and like he’d been in our band forever. He doesn’t try to make you write a certain kind of song. He just listens and then Jedi puppet masters the best work out of you. The opening synth riff of ‘Get Out’ was the first thing to emerge on our first day in the studio with him.”
For frontwoman Lauren Mayberry, it’s about capturing the current climate – as fiery and emotionally tumultuous as it is. “When I listen to the record, I feel like it’s the most pop stuff we’ve done and also the most aggressive and vulnerable at the same time. It was about really leaning into those moments — and also wanting there to be a real humanity and character to what we’re saying.”
We’re anticipating CHVRCHES are about to get a few thing outs of their system – we’re ready.
