Single Review – Chvrches -Warning Call

It seems that whenever you need a soundtrack these days, you need to call for the cinematic sound of Chvrches. The free-running game Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst has done just that and the Glaswegian trio duly delivered with ‘Warning Call’. In its sound it is a little removed from their second album Every Open Eye from last year. It features a steady drum machine beat, shimmering synths and plunging drops towards the chorus. Lauren Mayberry’s vocals synchronise with the electronic chords effortlessly and they extend her melodies in a soaring fashion. A simple ode to the sound that has established Chvrches on the musical map before they move on to new challenges.
