Glaswegian trio CHVRCHES have dropped a brand new single, ‘Good Girls’, the latest track to be taken from their soon-to-be-released fourth record, ‘Screen Violence’.
Lauren Mayberry (vocals) had the following to say.
“The opening line (killing your idols is a chore) was something I wrote after listening to some friends arguing about the present day implications of loving certain problematic male artists – I was struck by the lengths that people would go to in order to excuse their heroes and how that was so juxtaposed to my own experiences in the world. Women have to constantly justify their right to exist and negotiate for their own space. We’re told that Bad Things don’t happen to Good Girls. That if you curate yourself to fit the ideal – keep yourself small and safe and acceptable – you will be alright, and it’s just not fucking true.”
You can check out ‘Good Girls’ and its video below.
The band’s fourth record, ‘Screen Violence’ is set to be released on August 27th 2021 via Virgin EMI / Glassnote Records.
Pre-orders for the record are available via the label’s webstore.
