£21.99 – Indies only white 180g LP
Chvrches are back!
Chvrches have announced new album Every Open Eye, the follow-up to 2013’s The Bones of What You Believe. The album was recorded at their Alucard Studios in Glasgow, and according to a listing on the Australian retailer Sanity, it’s out September 25 via Universal.
In our feature “Keeping it Unreal: In the Studio With Chvrches”, Lauren Mayberry discussed the album’s themes:
Because the album was written over such a long period of time, it’s about the goods and the bads, the beginnings and ends. Personally, I’m in a good place right now, but there’s definitely anti-love songs on there as well. “Leave a Trace” is the middle finger mic-drop. It’s about that point where you’re like, “There’s no point having this conversation anyways: There will be no resolve, I won’t feel better about it, you won’t feel better about it, no outcome from this will actually change my reality.” It makes me feel better to write about that—I’ve done something constructive with it. You don’t put that on other people, you put that into what you do. That’s always the way I’ve written lyrics. My ex-partners are not friends with me, but I’m OK with that.
More info coming soon:)
