Chvrches - Warning Call

Chvrches still can do no wrong.

Chvrches still can do no wrong.



Perfecto-Banger



It’s been said before - Chvrches don’t make bad tracks. Heck, they rarely make anything you’d simply peg as good. With a low marker of casual brilliance, their bar is quite possibly the highest of any band of their vintage. They’re still to put a foot run.

Take ‘Warning Call’, the new track that accompanies the Mirror’s Edge Catalyst video game. Written from the point of view of the game’s protagonist, in the hands of most others such a construct wound end up with a confusing muddle. For Chvrches, it’s completely natural - their dystopian, neon landscape fitting perfectly.

Two albums down, and still able to offer up choice cuts without breaking sweat, it’s clear Chvrches are still growing. When they’re finally finished we’ll all be looking up.

Give all this a try
