Watch Chvrches Cover Lorde On BBC Radio 1
We’ve gotten used to the sublime Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches doing covers of other great artists; in the past year they’ve tackled works by HAIM, Whitney Houston, Bauhaus, Janelle Monaé, Arctic Monkeys, and the Game Of Thrones theme. They added to their repertoire today on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, where they performed Lorde’s “Team,” a song especially suited to their skill set. Before the performance, they answered some questions including which artist they’d like to hear cover their own “Recover,” to which they replied Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins, Cat Power, or Tegan and Sara. Let them take you to chvrch below.
Chvrches’ The Bones Of What You Believe and Lorde’s Pure Heroine have been out since last fall, but don’t expect either act to retreat from the spotlight any time soon.
