CHVRCHES’s sophomore album Every Open Eye hits stores in just two weeks time, on September 25th through Glassnote Records. Thus far, the Glasgow trio has unfurled “Leave A Trace” and “Never Ending Circle” as early singles. Today brings another advanced listen in the form of “Clearest Blue”.
“Clearest Blue” begins with the buoyancy we’ve come to love from CHVRCHES, a slow-but-steady drum machine beating onward as all types of synthetic noise zips and hums. Each chorus brings with it an increase in tension, which all finally explodes at the halfway mark in a fury of hyped up synth notes. You can just imagine the lasers and lights radiating from the stage as the song commands the crowd to start jumping.
It’s surely to be a live favorite on the band’s upcoming tour, so check out the studio version below.
