Hurricane (CHVRCHES Remix)
CHVRCHES are one of the few bands who’ve successfully brought retrofuturistic electropop out of shadowy SoundCloud nichedom to flirt with mainstream success. This wonderful remix of New York dark pop duo MS MR displays some of the production wizardry that’s contributed to that meteoric rise. The Glaswegians blend glittery Footloose-era synthwave with the original track’s haunting Noir&B to produce a very original remix, replete with crunchy electro whipcrack samples, skittering arpeggios and moon bouncing hooks. The track, which premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show last Friday, is available as a free download below.
