CHVRCHES Share New 'Screen Violence' Track "Good Girls"
Published Jul 12, 2021CHVRCHES are back showing off their upcoming album Screen Violence. This time, that comes via the new single "Good Girls."
As a press release explains, "Good Girls" came early in the Screen Violence process and sets the lyrical tone of the album.
Frontwoman Lauren Mayberry explained the song like this:
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 hear "Good Girls below. It follows the previously shared album tracks "He Said She Said" and "How Not to Drown" featuring the Cure's Robert Smith.
Screen Violence is due out on August 27 via Glassnote Records. CHVRCHES are taking the album out on tour this fall, and you can see all their upcoming dates here. They are playing Toronto on November 24.
