CHVRCHES – Gun (Groundislava Remix)
Glaswegian electropop sensations CHVRCHES are among a handful of new high-profile acts successfully bridging the gap between 80s revival electronica and accessible radio pop. Their latest track “Gun” was just remixed by LA artist Jasper Patterson (AKA Groundislava), who first caught our ear on “TV Dream,” a breathtaking collaboration with mysterious Japanese underground producer and former hikikomori Clive Tanaka. Groundislava’s “Gun” remix is marked by creatively deconstructed vocals and cascades of Nintendo-wave synth blips that land his sound in a nebulous zone somewhere between chiptune and nu-disco. His playfully experimental electronica and CHVRCHES tight pop hooks come together beautifully in this track, which will be featured on the Gun EP, out July 14 in the UK.
