Scottish synthpoppers Chvrches have never recorded a bad song, but they’re not exactly the most prolific group. Unless I’m missing something, their new track “Warning Call” is the first thing they’ve shared since they released their great sophomore album Every Open Eye back in September. They wrote the new song for the video game Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, a reboot of the 2008 game Mirror’s Edge. Lauren Mayberry wrote the song’s lyrics from the perspective of Faith, the game’s protagonist. Listen to the track and read a statement from band member Iain Cook below, via Pitchfork.
We were honored to be asked to contribute to the soundtrack for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. The sound of Chvrches’ music resonates with the minimalist sci-fi dystopia of the Mirror’s Edge world, and we feel that the song complements the drama, emotion and empowering themes of Faith’s story.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is out 6/7 in North America and 6/9 in Europe.
