A new, untitled, song from Chvrches

Generationally divergent pop trio Cvrches are busy wearing out the "handclap" button on their exhaustive world tour - but that hasn't stopped them working up new material on the bus.

Their covers of the Arctic Monkeys' Do I Wanna Know, Lorde's Team and, best of all, Whitney Houston's It's Not Right But It's Ok have kept fans happy for the last 12 months. More excitingly, though, they're starting to add original songs to their setlists.

Captured live at Austin City Limits last weekend, here's a track that's so new it doesn't have an official title (the band have variously called it Richard Pryor, Gene Wilder, and Eddie Murphy). The lyrics aren't entirely clear - it's either a call to revolution or a twisted tale of fucked up love or a combination of the two - but it's great even in this unpolished incarnation. Lauren singing "I would live inside you" in that fluttery falsetto sends shivers up my spine.

Chvrches - 'Richard Pryor'
