Glasgow trio Chvrches are feverishly tipped for 2013, landing in the Top 5 of the BBC’s much-debated Sound Of 2013 list.
They’re the latest in a long line of madly hyped electro-poppers (see La Roux, Little Boots, and Hurts), but they’re more promising than most of their forbears, with a nice line in Depeche Mode grandeur with Tri Angle-friendly flourishes.
LuckyMe’s Cid Rim has remixed signature track ‘Recover’, and it’s a spirited revision of an already impressive pop song. Rim’s take is a lucent synth number in the mould of longtime associate Dorian Concept, full of strobing neon synths and bottled melodrama. There’s also a surprisingly gully drop, which stands in stark contrast to the gauzy sonics found on Rim’s debut LP. [via Hypetrak]
