Apparently all of the best music is hiding in Scotland? Yesterday, we brought you the fine indie-rock stylings of Selkirk’s Frightened Rabbit. Today, however, we’re going in a slightly different direction with CHVRCHES.
The Glasgow-based trio draws inspiration from Prince, Robyn, Depeche Mode, Kate Bush, Lil Wayne and Elliott Smith, and if you’re struggling to figure out what that all adds up to, think somewhere between Ellie Goulding and The Knife. “Recover” has a very similar sound and feel to the latter group’s “Heartbeats” (as noted in other corners of the internet). It’s one of those “immediately love it” or not tracks, and you’ll know where you stand as soon as you hit the play button.
So, uh, hit the play button already! You know you want to.
