In the past week or so, CHVRCHES has been teasing us about a forthcoming single featuring Matt Berninger of The National as a guest. As huge fans of both bands, we couldn’t wait to hear the track. Today, we get to listen to My Enemy, a new taste from CHVRCHES’ next album Love Is Dead. And as expected, it’s left me with chills. Droopy retro synths and Matt Berninger’s deep rolling voice join Lauren Mayberry and the Scottish electro-pop projects’ signature sound on the aching tune. For CHVRCHES, this is downtempo and morose, but what else would you expect with Matt Berninger in tow? It’s a nice change of pace for a band who’s scintillated us with their upbeat pulsing anthems, and I can’t get enough of its slick production. We’re still waiting on more information regarding that next CHVRCHES album, but we’re pre-ordering it the moment the chance arrives!
