Song of the Month: Chvrches, Violent Delights

My initial impression of Chvrches’ fourth album was a little lukewarm, but overtime it has grown on me. I still wouldn’t rank it in the same category as Love Is Dead or The Bones of What You Believe (which I’d rate as “masterpieces”), but I have developed an appreciation for its brooding flavour. Seeing the songs performed live helped a lot — they work much better in a darkened club.

While Lauren says Screen Violence was not intended as a “horror concept album,” it does have a decidedly spooky bent, so going back to it felt like the perfect choice for October.
