Scottish electro-pop three-piece Chvrches have teased their long-awaited return with a snippet of a brand new track – and you can listen to it here.
The Glasgow-based band posted the clip on Instagram, with a brief video of lead singer Lauren Mayberry scrawling love hearts on a window, accompanied by a ear-splitting instrumental that gradually morphs into a synth-driven sound.
Played on Shazam, the clip is revealed as a song called Get Out – which suggests that their comeback isn’t too far away.
In a recent interview, Mayberry revealed that the group’s comeback album – and follow-up to 2015’s Every Open Eye – will be titled Love Is Dead.
She also said they are working on the album with Adele producer Greg Kurstin, who has taken the group in a more pop-driven direction.
“He’s done such big pop records, but they’ve always got a bit of saltiness in them,” Mayberry said of Kurstin’s past work.
“He pushed what we were doing to be bigger in some ways, but he also pushed us to be weirder. He’d be like, ‘If the vocal melodies are as sweet and as precise as this, why don’t we make these other sounds so fucked up and gnarly and strange?’ I loved that.”
