NEWS: CHVRCHES release surprise new single, ‘Over’

Scottish alt-pop trio, CHVRCHES, have surprised fans with the release of their new single, ‘Over.’

Their first new music in over a year marks a new phase in the band’s evolution, following a triumphant run of shows in Australia and Asia.

‘Over’ sees the band team up with producer-songwriter Oscar Holter (The Weeknd, Charli XCX, Coldplay, and BTS) for a soaring, alt-pop anthem that arrives ahead of nine stadium shows in support of Coldplay in Brazil this March.

The band say, “Over is a song that we wrote with Oscar Holter, a producer we really respect and admire. Normally, we collect songs over the course of months (or years!) until we have an album’s worth of material, but this time we just wanted to release something we were excited about and give the fans something new to mark the end of the Screen Violence era and the start of whatever the next CHVRCHES chapter might be.”

Formed in Glasgow in 2011, CHVRCHES broke out with their debut single, ‘The Mother We Share’. Across their four UK top 10 albums, the band have amassed over 234 million UK streams and 1.7 billion global streams to date.

Screen Violence was met with universal critical acclaim for its ‘gothic disco‘ vibes and features the singles ‘He Said She Said’, and ‘How Not To Drown’ featuring one of the band’s musical heroes The Cure’s Robert Smith, with whom they won the NME Award for ‘Best Song By a UK Artist’ in 2022, and ‘Good Girls’ which was later remixed by the iconic film director and legendary actor, screenwriter and composer John Carpenter. The official accompanying videos for these singles formed a lo-fi, nostalgic, and analogue-inspired trilogy directed by multi-disciplinary artist Scott Kiernan.
