Featured Release

Love Is Dead

Chvrches: Love Is Dead
Genre: Indie Pop/Electronic
Label: Glassnote

Chvrches return with their third full-length LP after opening their discography with back-to-back well-received electronic/indie-pop albums.  Continuing to push the pop boundaries defined by Every Eye Open, Love Is Dead figures to continue honing the band’s well-established approach.  On the heels of successful singles such as ‘Get Out’ and ‘My Enemy’ (featuring The National’s Matt Berninger), it figures to be yet another commercially successful venture.  On the record’s sound, the band was quoted as saying that they opted for “more universal topics instead of introspection”, and that Love Is Dead is “the most pop stuff we’ve done and also the most aggressive and vulnerable at the same time.”  Check the record’s lead single below.
