CHVRCHES – “Every Open Eye”

Sensitive synth-pop, expanding on their debut’s combination of hooks and huge soundscapes.  Staccato verses and sweeping choruses, offer a bright, punchy approach.  Able to make simple arrangements sound massive.  Their ’80s influences are sometimes understated, and sometimes more blatant, with the synth tones and her vulnerable vocals/lyrics.
