High Enough To Carry You Over

Album: Every Open Eye (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This disillusioned track features vocals by multi-instrumentalist Martin Doherty, rather than Chvrches' usual lead singer Lauren Mayberry. Their bandmate Iain Cook explained to HMV.com: "It was just that song suited his voice and didn't really work when we tried it with Lauren's. It's fun to change things up a bit."
  • Martin Doherty also sang lead on two The Bones of What You Believe tracks, "Under the Tide" and "You Caught the Light."
