Single Review – Chvrches – Get Away

Chvrches have taken a little time out from their unrelenting showcasing of their debut album The Bones of What You Believe to offer up a contribution to the reworking of the ‘Drive’ soundtrack with the track ‘Get Away’. Foals, SBTRKT and Laura Mvula are just some of the artists taking part in the reworking of the 2011 film’s soundtrack, with Lauren Mayberry highlighting how “the kind of music in the original score fits in with what we are doing” when she was talking on the Zane Lowe show this week on Radio 1. The track has a simple clicking backbeat from which waves of distorted electronica flow outwards to then settle in to a chiming and expansive verse with Mayberry’s distorted and muffled vocal. The track then bursts into clarity and light for the chorus with crisp sounds and vocals with all pop melody and harmony. The song goes on to fade in and out of clarity to really hammer home the chorus in all it’s delicately formed and electronic splendour. A track awash with luscious synthetica.
