This slice of Synth-Pop finds Lauren Mayberry trying to figure out a relationship that is hanging in the balance as she desperately urges her companion to love her or leave her. She croons:
"Carved. Earth. Cold Hiding from you in this skin. So. Old."
The song was originally the title track of Chvrches debut EP. It was subsequently released as the second single from the Scottish trio's first studio album The Bones of What You Believe peaking at #91 on the UK Singles Chart.
Mayberry told Coup De Main magazine how the Chvrches trio pen their songs. "It's a three-part writing process - everyone's equally involved in all the writing," she explained. "Normally we'll start with a sample or a drumbeat, or a synth sound or something like that, and that will spark the initial idea. And then we'll write an instrumental sketch of a song, and then we put on a nonsense vocal melody, which is always my favourite bit because it obviously sounds amazing. Then the lyrics go on last, at the end."
