Chvrches – “Falling” (HAIM Cover)

By Tom Breihan / July 9, 2013

Falling,” the sweeping chiffon jam from the Cali sister act HAIM, is one of the year’s sneaky-great singles, and the fact that other groups are starting to cover it is just an indication of how good a song it is. The Glaswegian syntpop trio Chvrches, whose own “Recover” also belongs on the sneaky-great list, tried out a version of the song during an in-studio session for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge Late. The Chvrches version is blippier and more brittle, but it keeps the dreamy swoop of the original song fully intact. Listen below.
