Chvrches

This week, the Scottish synthpop trio Chvrches released their debut album The Bones Of What You Believe, and we made it our Album Of The Week. And in a recent BBC radio session for Zane Lowe, the group affirmed their starry-eyed pop-music credentials by covering a classic of the form: Whitney Houston’s heart-scraped 1999 tech-soul monster “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay.” The clap-heavy arrangement is interesting, and even if Lauren Mayberry isn’t anywhere near being the singer Houston was, it’s still pretty powerful to hear her delivering all that sentiment in her deeply empathetic voice. Listen below.
