Chvrches give ‘Call It Off’ a whole new dimension.

Banger




Chvrches are no strangers to covers. Their latest comes in the form of Tegan & Sara’s ‘Call It Off’ turning into a synth-laden dreamscape with Lauren Mayberry’s delicate vocals bleeding the emotional side of the lyrics with “maybe I would have been something you’d be good at” and “I’ll start to wonder if this was the thing to do” delivered like a punch to the chest.

The synths from Martin Doherty and Iain Cook create the perfect luscious canvas for Mayberry to work her magic to give ‘Call It Off’ a whole new dimension from the lo-fi guitar driven original. It’s the first taste of new material from the Scottish trio since 2016’s ‘Warning Call’ and if what’s to come is half as good as this, then we are in for a treat. Josh Williams

To find out more, Dork headed round to frontman Matty Healy’s house to quiz him on what life’s currently like in the most exciting band on the planet.

It also, not entirely coincidentally, breaks from the usual summer festival sausagefest template.
