Chvrches Release Mysterious, Sci-Fi-Styled "Recover" Video

Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches—one of our Song of the Day favorites—just dropped a clip for their latest single "Recover." 

The cinematic clip plays like a mysterious promo trailer for a sci-fi blockbuster from the mid-nineties. Cubes float through a post-apocalyptic metal-and-desert landscape while lead singer Lauren Mayberry's voice issues forth from an airlock door (she also briefly appears on a computer screen later in the clip). 

Watch it above and marvel at the fact that Mayberry has a voice this gorgeous and a law degree and a master's in journalism. And if you dig it, listen to their M83-esque "The Mother We Share" right here.
