Ahead of their new album release, Chvrches switch things up thanks to Justin Bieber.
During their appearance on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, the Scottish trio performed an electrifying and mechanical version of Bieber’s recent No. 1 hit “What Do You Mean.” They strip away Bieber’s griping pleads for a straight-forward, detached rendition.
“We just want to have a bit of fun with it,” the band’s Martin Doherty explained. “I’m a huge fan of that tune, and [Bieber’s] recent output with Jack U as well. It’s really, really good.”
Chvrches’ sophomore record, Every Open Eye, drops Sep. 25.
