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.

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.
