Under the Covers: CHVRCHES x The 1975

Welcome to Under the Covers, your weekly dose of genre-bending with your favorite WBRU artists & songs! From the genuinely good to the seriously strange, we’ve got you covered. This week, CHVRCHES perform a synthpop hit by The 1975!


In March, Scottish trio CHVRCHES visited the Radio 1 Live Lounge to cover The 1975’s “Somebody Else.” The 2016 hit is a dreamy rumination on post-breakup envy, with subdued vocals, a funky bassline, and synths galore. CHVRCHES’ version is faithful to the original, but frontwoman Lauren Mayberry’s effortless soprano gives the song a fresh feel. Listen to the cover below! (plus, throwback to WBRU’s interview with CHVRCHES from a bygone Boston Calling!)
