Synthpop band CHVRCHES probably need little introduction in 2023. The three band members settled on the name CHVRCHES, using the Roman letter “v” instead of a “u”. This spelling was chosen to differentiate themselves from actual churches in online search results.
The band have been around for more than a decade and have released four studio albums in that time. The latest, 2021’s Screen Violence topped the album chart in their native Scotland and featured the single How Not To Drown which spent three weeks at number one on RadiJohan’s Top 10.
This week CHVRCHES return with their first new single in over a year. In a press release the band shared:
“’Over’ is a song that we wrote with Oscar Holter, a producer we really respect and admire. Normally we collect songs over the course of months (or years!) until we have an album’s worth of material, but this time we just wanted to release something we were excited about and give the fans something new to mark the end of the ‘Screen Violence’ era, and the start of whatever the next CHVRCHES chapter might be.”
