CHVRCHES Cover HAIM’s “Falling”: Listen

We love CHVRCHES, and we love that they love the ALL-CAPS bands that we love. Earlier this year, the Scottish trio completely flipped MS MR‘s “Hurricane” on its head with their peppy remix, and now they’ve covered HAIM‘s “Falling.” The synth-poppers performed the song for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge Late, and turned the earthy, earnest pop tune into a sparkly, late-night dance gem.

HAIM’s rich harmonies are lost here, but CHVRCHES fill that void with syncopated drum machine snaps and rubbery synth lines. Check out the cover below, then compare it to HAIM’s original.
