Last week, Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES caught us off guard with her surprisingly sanguine cover of Rage Against The Machine classic "Killing In The Name". Yesterday, the Scottish synth-pop group kept us on our toes by releasing their newest single "Gun"; a song that we've been listening to on repeat as it was performed during the band's visit to Hype Hotel back in March.
"Gun", similar to other CHVRCHES tracks, is saturated by hands-in-the-air hooks, and is reminiscent of the sheer joy we all fell in love with back in 2009 on Passion Pit's now-classic debut Manners. Listen below.
