Watch Chvrches cover Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Time After Time’

Some of us have been waiting years for this.
If you think about it, Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Time After Time’ is exactly the kind of song you’d want Chvrches to cover. Glorious, 80s pop brilliance, it’s both perfectly pitched and yet provides enough room to find something new and interesting.

Heck, we’re not the only ones thinking that. Here’s Tim, from back in 2013, saying the same thing.

And back in 2014, they said it could happen.

But come 2015, we were still waiting.

Well, Tim and friends, today’s your day, because the band – or at least two thirds of them – have done exactly that.

Performing an Iain down at LA charity benefit ‘A Holiday Veriety Show’, Martin and Lauren burst out the classic cover. Stripped back and with a new edge, you can check it out here – it’s the third track they play – or see a clip via the tweet below.

Chvrches are getting ready to unleash their third album – which earlier this week they described as the “most pop” but also most “aggressive and vunerable” thing they’ve done. So that’s something to get excited about.
