Scottish indie-pop trio CHVRCHES released their Spotify Singles yesterday. The two-song mini-EP is a departure, completely drained of the synthesisers that have always coursed through their euphoric melodies. Instead, they turn their own "Get Out" and a cover of Rihanna's Unapologetic hit "Stay" into straightforward acoustic tracks. If you found Love Is Dead – the band's third LP, released last month – too routine, then the fluttering guitars and upright pianos that back lead singer Lauren Mayberry here won't do much to excite you. But Mayberry does still have a crystalline voice, and "Stay" gives her the opportunity to find a few more blue notes. Listen to it in full below.
