Words: Saam Das
Scottish electro-pop CHVRCHES have achieved something of a "meteoric rise" since they came together from a smattering of relatively unheralded other Scottish outfits. Murmurings of approval upon the emergence of their demos were built upon with impressive live performances and a major label deal. New single 'Gun' could be the one that matches their critical acclaim with more commercial success.
'Gun' follows debut single 'The Mother We Share' and the excellent recent 'Recover' EP. I'm still not 100% enamoured with Lauren Mayberry's high pitched vocals but this mix of Prince and The Knife is bouncy enough to enjoy regardless.
