Hey Mr. DJ: Chvrches’ “Miracle”

Chvrches might not make the dancefloor bangers you’re accustomed to hearing in the club, but in the seven years since the Scottish outfit arrived on the indie circuit, it’s perfected its own brand of synth-pop, a sound that needs to be heard in the big room.

“Miracle” reflects that sentiment—an obvious standout off the group’s May release Love Is Dead. Singer Lauren Mayberry has a voice that stands out among the best of the Billboard chart-toppers: think Daya, Halsey, Bebe Rexha—you get the picture.

Shimmering electronics, emotive vocals and a thundering chorus—“Miracle” has all the ingredients of a summer jam, the kind of track that’s just begging to be played again and again. Sure, indie pop isn’t what Vegas clubs typically play, but in a city full of top-rate DJs I’m willing to bet there’s one out there who could work this in effortlessly. Could it be you?
