Chorusgirl Chorusgirl on LP
The brainchild of German songwriter, singer and rhythm guitarist Silvi Wersing, Chorusgirl blend the shimmering dreaminess of 4AD bands like Lush, the noir pop of The Cure and the bittersweet electricity of The Breeders across 10 songs that sparkle with melody and pop nous but are stealthily subverted by something darker. Dig beneath the surface of the perfect pop songs on Chorusgirl and you'll find heavy lyrics about saying goodbye, giving up, grief, alienation and loneliness. It's all deliberately coded though, shrouded in the metaphysical poetry that Silvi does so well. With their debut album Chorusgirl breathe new life into guitar pop, reinvigorating the genre with fresh hooks and sharp-edged songs full of heartache, anger and grit.
