Thoughts on Songs with CHVRCHΞS
I think this song is a relationship one, as much as group one. What I mean by group is, I think it explores the authority like relationship building up inside hierarchical teams, and the almost sexual driven intensity that sometimes is observed under those circumstances.
These folks have their popularity rising rapidly and I'm happy, they seem to present a humble and focused on writting good tunes attitude; plus they're Scottish. Always a plus. I was confused with the "V" thing at first though, I thought they were in the Witch House genre. Settle for a artist comment instead of a song comment for a change.
