WATCH: CHVRCHES Share Quarantine Version of “Forever”
The Love Is Dead single gets the social distance treatment.
2020 marks the launch of a new genre of demo: the “separate but together” version. Last night Grouplove performed an impressively in-sync Kimmel set from five separate locales, and this morning CHVRCHES shared their own nicely synchronized quarantine performance of their 2018 track “Forever.”
Having regained relevance recently with its placement in the hit Netflix show Elite, the group chose to play the track for longtime fans and viewers of the Spanish-language teen drama alike.
“‘Forever,’ in my mind, was always a sort of homage to the songs that were in John Hughes movies,” vocalist Lauren Mayberry shared in a press statement earlier today. “Mostly I write lyrics from a more personal perspective but for this one I always imagined it soundtracking a Breakfast Club library dance type moment so it’s strange and cool that the song is now getting a second life because of a TV sync.”
Watch the clip below—and let’s hope the single also gets a proper video treatment whenever the band reconvenes.
