Chvrches: The Mother We Share
Electroshock therapy wouldn’t get this thing out of your head. From the opening samples to the anticipatory handclaps and all the way to the cutest use of the word ***k in 2013, Chvrches’ The Mother
We Share is the most complete pop song of the year.
Rarely does a song sound so retro while encompassing all that’s new, but Lauren Mayberry and her crew crafted what amounts to the most inescapable hook any music fan has heard in a long, long time. If the accented synths through the verses won’t get you, the desperation of the chorus will.
It’s true: Everything old is new again and in this case, everything new is better than it’s ever been.
