Chvrches Debut New Single “Over”
Chvrches have shared new single ‘Over,’ today via Island Records (US) / EMI (UK). The track, which is accompanied by the music video, is the band’s first new music in over a year as the band say goodbye to their Screen Violence era. Following a triumphant run of shows in Australia and Asia, the track heralds a new phase for the Glaswegian trio. ‘Over’ sees them team up with producer-songwriter Oscar Holter (The Weeknd, Charli xcx) for a soaring, alt-pop anthem that arrives ahead of nine stadium shows in support of Coldplay in Brazil this March.
Of the track, the band states: “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.”
Screen Violence features the singles ‘He Said She Said’, ‘How Not To Drown’ featuring one of the band’s musical heroes The Cure’s Robert Smith, with whom they won the NME Award for ‘Best Song By a UK Artist’ in 2022, and ‘Good Girls’ which was later remixed by the iconic film director and legendary actor, screenwriter and composer John Carpenter. The official accompanying videos for these singles formed a lo-fi, nostalgic, and analogue-inspired trilogy directed by multi-disciplinary artist Scott Kiernan.
