Following the massive success of 2013’s The Bones of What You Believe, Glaswegian synth-pop titans CHVRCHES release their long-awaited second album Every Open Eye this week via Universal. But they apparently weren’t too busy to arrange and rehearse a fantastic, very CHVRCHES cover of Justin Bieber’s still-shockingly universally appealing, late-entry Song of the Summer dark horse “What Do You Mean?” which here loses its airy two-step swing for a thicker, punchier disco strut. They performed the tune live on BBC Radio 1 today and you can watch a video below.
