Watch CHVRCHES Cover Lorde’s ‘Team’

By Shannon Carlin

Yesterday (March 10), CHVRCHES took the BBC Live Lounge stage to add a little experience to Lorde’s youthful pop song “Team.”

While Lorde sounds wise beyond her years on the track off her 2013 debut, Pure Heroine, CHVRCHES singer Lauren Mayberry sounds like someone who’s been there done that. Sweetly singing, “I’m kind of tired of getting told to throw my hands up in the air. So there.”

When it comes to who CHVRCHES would like to see cover their song “Recover” off their 2013 debut, The Bones of What You Believe, they said it’s a toss up between Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins, Cat Power and Tegan and Sara.

The band has become known for their covers, including Whitney Houston’s “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay and Arctic Monkeys“Do I Wanna Know?,” and say for them, it’s all about making them their own. They also claim Lorde will be the last cover they’re going to do for a while. So enjoy it.

CHVRCHES is currently on tour overseas, but will return to the States on April 10 in Portland, OR, before making a stop at Coachella.
