Both of the Chvrches first two albums were named after lyrics from certain songs, but for their third record, Mayberry came up with a phrase that sums up the story she wanted to tell.
"It was supposed to be a little jarring. And I don't get up every day and agree with [the phrase] every single day, but f---ing some days I do," she told Billboard
of the Love Is Dead
title. "It's supposed to be a starting point for the conversation that happens across the record. Somebody is trying to figure out why they feel the way they do and you don't necessarily have an answer, but you're trying to wade through that frustration and confusion - and what do you do with all that once you know."
