"Agreed saying someone is good looking is 100% sexist."

well I mean, not really, but sort of. the fact that you think it could never be logically interpreted at sexist is the troubling bit for me. women get really annoyed when they're constantly being told how good-looking, cute etc. they are. it's like they're being defined by their looks (which never happens to men) and you can't argue that that's not how you're defining them. it's worth thinking about anyway, the fact that you think a woman hearing you say how hot she is is a compliment and she should be proud of this.

I'm not really into Electropop, but CHVRCHES really stood out to me to me since I first heard The Mother We Share. Really really catchy, and I do like how each track has its own style, like "Gun" is a really poppy, upbeat, catchy song, and then there's "science/visions" or "lies" which are more darker sounding. Fantastic vocals, Fantastic Synth parts. And yes, Lauren is a qt.

80s influenced Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches deliver on the hype with their much-anticipated debut LP 'The Bones of What You Believe'. Impressively self-produced, the layered arrangements not only mean there is sufficient diversity, but also that the tunes are darker than the catchy melodies suggest. Out front, Lauren Mayberry's sweet & enchanting vocals take center stage & recall Robyn's fragile style. Surprisingly consistent & using build-ups effectively, it’s still a touch repetitive & over-long, but the room for improvement for such a young band makes Chvrches an exciting proposition. Recommended Tracks: Recover, Gun, The Mother We Share & Tether.
