Glawsgow’s CHVRCHES have been blowing up the indie-electronic scene solely off the strength of their debut EP and a spectacular remix of MS MR’s “Hurricane”. Their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, comes out on September 24th, but they have a new lead single from the album to hold us over until then. “Gun” follows suit with the incredibly addictive “Recover,” with poppy synths and Lauren Mayberry’s soothing vocal melodies.
WEDIDIT’S Groundislava takes a more minimal approach to the song, masking and chopping up the vocals until the infectious chorus comes in. Then at the 1:30 mark, Groundislava completely makes the track his own, picking up the dancey vibe created in the original and adding in pitched-down vocals. I have listened to CHVRCHES‘ original “Gun” countless times since it’s release, but I think this is going to be the version I’ll be playing when I want to jam out.
