Chvrches - The Mother We Share

Our Rating


Some songs just can't be listened to without moving something. Scotland pop collective Chvrches' "The Mother We Share" is one such song.

For us, it was our feet, our hand, our heads, and pretty much everything else that couldn't resist moving to the beat. "The Mother We Share" is just plain catchy. It beautifully merges electronicized music with today's mainstream pop concepts, while bringing its own unique charm to keep the listener on his toes.

Most vital to achieving such a strong sound is the spectacular vocals by Lauren Mayberry, who's bouncing, sparkling, full, and innocent voice elevate the song to a whole new level. Secondary but also greatly executed in the song are the background vocals, which become not only harmonious elements, but also a separate instrument unto themselves thanks to some solid production and creativity.

The song lacks a particular depth and sophistication that truly makes it an unforgettable piece, but it is tremendously fun and extremely well crafted. It is bubbly, creative, and just something that makes everyone who hears it listen and then smile. Chvrches is just getting started, but there's no telling how far they'll go. Chvrches can be seen live in the UK Nov. 13-20 with Passion Pit.

"The Mother We Share" is available for download on Nov. 5 via National Anthem and Create Control Music.
