Chvrches: The Mother We Share

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MUSIC - — Colin McGuire

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.
