Ever since I heard “The Mother We Share” about a year ago, I’ve been in love with Scottish synthpop geniuses CHVRCHES. They’ve perfected the art of being listenable, smooth, and emotional with their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe.
Of the many brilliant tracks featured on the album, “Tether” quickly stood out to me as the next focus of my affection. The song starts off as a crooner, but about halfway through it turns into an eargasmic smattering of Lauren Mayberry’s angelic screeches and electrically charged synths. The song evolves much like a story would, and it might leave you feeling a little moved.
