Scottish electro-pop act Chvrches (pronounced “Churches,” for those who correctly identified that as a “v”) has already made an impressive, early impact on 2013. With an EP slated for release March 26 on Glassnote, the group has released a very mysterious, sci-fi video for title track “Recover.”
Falling somewhere between Prometheus and Blade Runner, the ominous clip prominently favors floating cubes over much of any spotlight for the Glasgow trio but provides an apt stylistic setting for the catchy track. With a synth-heavy sound and strong vocals from Lauren Mayberry that recall Purity Ring and M83, it certainly feels like there are big things in store for these Scots.
