The New CHVRCHES Single Is a Blissful Addition To Your Summer Playlist

CHVRCHES have released the first single from Every Open Eye, the follow-up to their 2013 debut The Bones of What You Believe. “Leave A Trace” suggests they haven’t evolved much in two years, but that’s fine with me.

Listen to 'Forget,' Marina and the Diamonds' Gorgeous Return to Form

Marina and the Diamonds is best known for a glitzily yearning, high-drama brand of cinema-pop—Hollywood infected my brain; Primadonna girl, fill the void up with celluloid; etc—and the deep tumult of her vocals as well as the conceptual stylization of her general vibe can alternately serve and obscure her tremendous… »3/03/15 2:45pm3/03/15 2:45pm

Watch Clare Maguire Go HAM on a New Track at the Burberry Runway Show

British singer-songwriter Clare Maguire has one of my favorite voices in the business right now—shivery, steel-sharp soul with some blood and tremble behind it—and now she's returned to the stage at Burberry, where Christopher Bailey's musical leanings have brought serious acoustic-leaning talent (Marika Hackman, Tom… »2/27/15 6:30pm2/27/15 6:30pm
