Single Review – Chvrches – Clearest Blue

With their second studio album out on September 25th, Chvrches have released their third single from the album Every Open Eye in ‘Clearest Blue’ and with it they demonstrate the gentle shift in their style in a more prominent fashion with this Dance track. As has been the case with their singles so far this year, they have made their sound leaner, cleaner and more direct, but additionally with this track, they have channelled their more industrial electronic sound into at a rapid pace and it resembles a Dance inspired track with those heavier beats. These are met with the wistful vocals of Lauren Mayberry which go a long way towards making the track more engaging as a piece of energetic pop as opposed to a frigid piece of Dance or Light Techno. It seems to me like Chvrches have played it smart when tackling the infamous second album.
