Chvrches – “Leave A Trace”

Chvrches – “Leave A Trace”

The formula Chvrches perfected on 2013 debut The Bones Of What You Believe is far from broken, so on the first single from eagerly anticipated follow-up Every Open Eye, they absolutely do not fix it. “Leave A Trace” upholds the Scottish trio’s reputation for sparkling synthpop excellence, slowly expanding from an initial low-key burble to a chorus so victorious that you can almost see Lauren Mayberry’s fist pumping. “I know I need to feel release,” Mayberry sweetly intones, before a more angry version of herself implores an ex-lover, “Take care to tell it just as it was.” It’s a song about getting over old heartbreaks, and it sounds tailor-made for a coming-of-age movie’s optimistically wistful final scene. Listen to the new song, complete with lyric video, below.

Every Open Eye is out 9/25 on Glassnote.
