CHVRCHES - He Said She Said

EDIT: I didn't expect it, but it grew on me a bit.
I like how the verses are written: they're quite simple but in the same time powerful, something that was missing in LID. However, the chorus is still very weak, and I still hate how much vocoder/autotune is used in the song. I think the whole song would have been better if the production was as dry as songs like Down Side of Me, it's useless to use so much vocoder if you have such a versatile voice like Lauren's in your band.

Original review below.


Being said that Chvrches are one of my favourite bands, this is honestly becoming very worrying. I had hopes that Death Stranding was just the first of many good songs in the future, but this is just a song that could easily fell into Love Is Dead (the autotuned parts look a lot like the Miracle chorus).

The more they go forward, the more I'm starting to think the first two albums were just an illusion.

Let's hope they'll prove me wrong with their next single...
