Primavera Sound 2018 #Thursday

It’s here! Thursday is the first full day of Primavera Sound 2018, with a line-up that, as we’ve come to expect, is extensive and impressive, and starts off with a bang on this day that features headliners such as everyone’s favourite Islandic avant-garde artist, Björk, with her latest album, ‘Utopia’ (2017), on which she collaborated with Arca, who you’ll also be able to catch at the festival; and elegance as music with Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, blasting out tracks from their emotional and a bit sad ‘Skeleton Tree’ (2016), which they’re performing for the first time in Barcelona. Also getting you moving between stages are Philadelphia band The War on Drugs, who, with ‘A Deeper Understanding’ (2017), have garnered as much praise as with their acclaimed previous album, ‘Lost in the Dream’ (2014), which had the international press kneeling at the feet of their classic rock; legendary band Sparks, that unclassifiable duo from Los Angeles made up of brothers Ron and Russel Mael, who present their 23rd album, ‘Hippopotamus’ (2017); the return of American hip hop artist Vince Staples; electronic and energetic pop from British trio Chvrches, with their much-anticipated new album, ‘Love Is Dead’ (2018); Fever Ray, a solo project for Swedish artist Karin Dreijer (The Knife), who’s also got a new album out, the contagious ‘Plunge’ (2017); electronica from Floating Points, also known as producer and doctor of neuroscience Sam Shepherd, performing live as well as a six-hour DJ set on Friday; Nils Frahm and his experimental electronica; the meloncholy of the all-women quartet Warpaint; iridescent psychedelic pop from New Zealanders Unknown Mortal Orchestra; and American artist Kelela, who impresses with her versatility and perfect adaptation to dominant trends in current electronica and pop.

Best Covers: Chvrches “Time After Time”

Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches have been busy working on their allegedly very poppy third album with Greg Kurstin, but they broke their year-long hiatus from the stage earlier this week. As a part of the Holiday Variety Show at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre, Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry and synth player Martin Doherty covered Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time.”

Best Covers: Chvrches ‘Call It Off’

Chvrches are no strangers to covers. Their latest comes in the form of Tegan & Sara’s ‘Call It Off’ turning into a synth-laden dreamscape with Lauren Mayberry’s delicate vocals bleeding the emotional side of the lyrics-

The synths from Martin Doherty and Iain Cook create the perfect luscious canvas for Mayberry to work her magic to give ‘Call It Off’ a whole new dimension from the lo-fi guitar driven original. It’s the first taste of new material from the Scottish band.
