Editors’ Notes “Sometimes when I listen to the radio I feel like I've heard all the songs before, even if they're brand new,” CHVRCHES’ Lauren Mayberry tells Apple Music of “He Said She Said,” a bold new single that headlines ALT CTRL this week. “I don’t think you could say that about this one.” For much of their time together, the Glaswegian synth-pop trio have worked to maintain a balance between what Mayberry describes as the “light and the dark, the pop and the alternative.” But to her, the song—bright, unyielding—felt right even if it felt different. “It's direct and bold and goes for the jugular but in its own way that I think sounds and feels specifically like us,” she says. “It felt like new territory for us, but also like coming home in a weird way. The band hadn't sounded quite like this before, but it was almost like we'd always imagined it would.” Add ALT CTRL to your library to stay up on the latest and greatest alternative music.
