CHVRCHES Announce 'Every Open Eye'; Drop Stellar First Cut

CHVRCHES, the Glasgow synth pop trio who stormed Triple J airwaves with 2013’s stellar The Bones of What You Believe, have formally announced their sophomore effort, Every Open Eye, as well as premiering the lead single, the scathing “Leave a Trace”.

The high-tempo cut, cherubic lead singer Lauren Mayberry’s favourite and an easy choice as the album’s lead apparently, is a wistful reflection on a soured relationship. The lyrical punches Mayberry throws (“Take care to leave a trace of a man”) are complemented by heavy bass, ethereal synth and whirlwind electronic doodles. Though this song is said to best represent the themes of the record, the band are adamant they didn’t want to wallow in such mature themes- though they are also wary of producing “saccharine shit.”

Walking cautiously down the middle path is a prudent option for a band perhaps on the precipice of worldwide acclaim and demand. There is a trickle of new CHVRCHES material on YouTube now, fan-shot videos of album cuts “Make Them Gold” and “Clearest Blue” from their recent Ottowa Bluesfest set, as well as the lyric video for “Leave A Trace” linked below. CHVRCHES are playing music festivals in America and Europe until November this year, at which point the album touring cycle is likely to start.

Every Open Eye will be released in Australia on September 25 (as Sanity, of all companies, revealed recently) through Universal. For track-listing and to pre-order, head to CHVRCHES’ website.
