Every Open Eye is heralded by first single, ‘Leave A Trace’, available as an instant-grat when pre-ordering the album: http://po.st/EOEiT. ‘Leave A Trace’ is an exceptional calling card for CHVRCHES’ new record – displaying the band’s expanded sonic pallet, it mixes darkness and light with one of their biggest tunes to date, and some of Lauren Mayberry’s darkest-yet-defiant lyrics yet, in her own words: “a middle finger mic drop about not being told what to do”. The song has already been streamed over five million times and topped the Spotify viral charts globally.
Listen to ‘Leave A Trace’:
“Mayberry sounds revived, assured, and inspiringly unbreakable” – DIY
“Supreme” – NME
“Sparkling synthpop excellence” – Stereogum
Every Open Eye is the follow up to the band’s breakthrough debut album The Bones of What You Believe, released in autumn 2013 to widespread acclaim and selling over 500,000 copies. The Brit Award nominated band clocked in 364 shows in 2 years, selling out venues across the world and making signature appearances at SXSW (where they were awarded the inaugural prize for best new act in 2013), Glastonbury, Coachella, Lollapalooza, Reading & Leeds, and myriad others.
