CHVRCHES - Get Out

CHVRCHES - Get Out

CHVRCHES at their finest.

Banger




Whether CHVRCHES have grown to become megastars, or the world has turned their way to make an exceptional band feel all the more important, 2018 and the trio’s as yet unannounced third album feel to be caught in their own perfect storm. Since day one, they’ve been a band who blend the sweet and salty in perfect measure. Working with pop mastermind producer Greg Kurstin may change the proportions, but as ‘Get Out’ proves, the final results are as delicious as ever.

Built around a sticky-as-velcro hook, the first track from the record that must surely push the Scots into the triple A list manages to bridge two points with ease. On one hand, it’s immediate, fresh and exciting - a calling card for what’s to follow that more than holds its own. On the other, it’s CHVRCHES at their finest - a lineage that runs back to breakthrough banger ‘The Mother We Share’, refreshed and reinvigorated, but still fully present in every note. Recalling the finest points of Tegan & Sara’s electro-pop masterpieces, there’s no higher compliment to give. Get in, while you still can. Stephen Ackroyd

The 1975: Modern life is rubbish?

The 1975 have just released their third album, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’. A staggering work of shifting expectations, it’s quite probably their masterpiece. 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.
