Chvrches - Tether (Junior Sanchez Remix)

Earlier today we revealed The Bones Of What You Believe by Chvrches as Breaking More Waves album of 2013. It’s the first time in the blogs short history that an electronic band has found their name at the top of the pile joining the likes of Bon Iver, Blue Roses, The National, The Unthanks and Lana Del Rey. It seems long overdue with much of our favourite tunes and output of the blog being electronic pop based. However, there’s a huge difference between a few brilliantly individual singles and a whole body of work that you can listen to repeatedly. 

Sometimes this is where pop falls over. Singles are generally pop’s game. Yet, as we’ve suggested a number of times in this year’s run down of our favourite long-players, in 2014 pop upped that game; Lorde, Pet Shop Boys, Little Boots and of course Chvrches have all made great pop albums where the sum of the parts is more than the individual songs.

If you missed any of our favourite 15 albums of 2013, you can find them all here.

Tomorrow we return to new music blogging, introducing before Christmas at least two acts that have had little (if any) coverage on blogs to date. Until then we’ll leave you with a new remix of one our favourite tracks from our favourite LP. Junior Sanchez takes hold of Tether and pumps it up for a hands in the air, catching lasers dancefloor moment. This is glorious.
