Synth-pop favs CHVRCHES return with a new single, Get Out

Don't be surprised to see the festival favourites at a specific multi-day Australian festival this winter.

Over the years, Scottish synth-pop three-piece CHVRCHES have become one of the genre's most adored acts, consistently putting out A-grade releases ever since they burst onto the scene with 2012's The Mother We Share and 2013's Recover. That said, since the release of 2015's Every Open Eye, the band have been relatively quiet – until now. Get Out is their first major single in three years and it's a definite return to form by the group, pairing the easily recognisable vocals of frontwoman Lauren Mayberry with a dazzling, synth-drenched production which almost feels like a more electronic take of Paramore.

"When I listen to the record, I feel like it’s the most pop stuff we’ve done and also the most aggressive and vulnerable at the same time," says Mayberry on the single and their forthcoming fourth album, which we can probably expect some time this year. "It was about really leaning into those moments — and also wanting there to be a real humanity and character to what we’re saying."

CHVRCHES have become Australian festival favourites over the years, performing at events including Splendour and Laneway, the latter of which they co-headlined during their last Australian visit. They've just announced a bunch of international festival shows (including Governors Ball and Parklife), which just so happen to finish in the weeks before Splendour In The Grass, so don't be surprised to see them run through their new music in Australia come late July.
