Sometimes it’s nice to go back in time with music and Chvrches Gun transports us right back to the cheesy dancing, psychedelic visual-fest that was the 80s. Yay!
The electro-pop band from Glasgow deliver up a gift of synthesizers and over-used video effects, resulting in a retro music video that’s as much a treat for the eyes as it is for the ears. To describe Chvrches music is not an easy task. Think of a cross between Depeche Mode and Kate Bush, a sound that feels familiar and yet stands alone amongst the abundance of nondescript indie-pop bands. It’s hardly surprising that the band have already recieved positive feedback from the likes of NME and The Huffington Post, with their high energy and 80s pop influences driving them forward.
Having come fifth on BBCs Sound of 2013 list, we can expect to see a lot more of the Scottish trio. Their debut album What You Believe will be released on 23 September, 2013.
