First of all, I would just like to give a quick shout-out to my fellow wordpress blog, 70dayweekend. They’re the one who brought my attention to today’s Band Discovery of the day. Seriously, check out their blog, it’s one of the best one on the web right now, with all sorts of cool info on bands that you and I love.
Okay, now for my Band Discovery for the day. Just this morning I heard the track The Mother We Share by the Glasgow-based electro-pop band, Chrvches. And all I can say is WOW!It was probably one of the best pop songs I have heard in a long, long while. It is so eargasm-worthy that I have probably played the song five straight times within the past hour. You might be forgiven for mistaking it for a Purity Ring track upon first listen (which in themselves, share similarities to songs by The Knife). But this track honestly feels like an evolution and a perfection of what these bands have done. It is that good. With a track like this and with bands such as the after-mentioned Purity Ring and Grimes around, the future of pop music truly is now.
Chvches, in case you’re curious are the trio of Iain Cook, Martin Doherty, and singer Lauren Mayberry. They have released only one other track (Lies) and there is still a lot of mystery surrounding them. They plan to release their debut album in early 2013. I’m already eagerly anticipating it!
Check out The Mother We Share embedded below. I’m pretty sure you’ll clicking the repeat button very soon!
