Scottish synth-pop trio, CHVRCHES, are best known for their glossy synth-pop ballads and and heavy, but charming sound. From each of their three original tracks, the group has proven to be a powerhouse when it comes to creating lush and irresistibly catchy singles. We’ve heard it already with “Lies,” “The Mother We Share” and “Recover,” but now it’s time for another.
To reaffirm their position atop the indie world, the group has given us a shocking new remix of St. Lucia‘s gazy tropical highlight, “Before The Dive.” Injecting it with a high dose of sparkle, CHVRCHES lay down a mighty arrangement of gleeming synths and deep, snapping beats. By pushing aside the original’s easy-going bassline and replacing it with a fuller backbone, CHVRCHES have been able to give it a definitive touch that is a lot more to our liking.
