Glasgwegian synth-pop upstarts work their magic
Your favorite new purveyors of synth-pop are back, this time with a remix of fellow puller-of-heartstrings, St. Lucia. CHVRCHES take on the St. Lucia EP standout by massaging in some chopped-up vocal samples and a tsunami of synth buzz in place of the original's plaintive piano work. The recent 5 Best New Artists inductees get there by allowing room for modulated vocals and 808 cowbell plinks that worm their way into the coda. It's heavy, and every bit as emotive.
