John Carpenter / Chvrches - Turning The Bones [Chvrches Remix]
Scottish synth pop sensations Chvrches have a history of commissioning remixes for each of their chart topping albums. Given the cinematic concept of their latest Screen Violence they wanted to get a composer involved who worked in that universe. Singer and percussionist Lauren Mayberry said that the master of horror John Carpenter was the top of their wish list elaborating that “His films and music have been so impactful on us over the years, and without the stories he created I am not sure that the concept of Screen Violence (and female narratives within the album) would exist in the way they do.” They decided to reach for the stars and contact Carpenter’s team and to their delight Carpenter was excited by the idea.

Lauren continues “As horror fans, we know that John Carpenter is the godfather and the gold standard and we’re so excited to get to work with him in any capacity... we never really thought he’d reply, let alone that he’d send back something better than the original.” Carpenter’s remix of the Chvrches song “Good Girls,” created alongside his creative partners Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies, enhances the depths of the song’s already infectious synthesiser melodies and adds his signature slightly sinister
swagger and groove.
“We chose the track we did because we connected with it the most and felt it would adapt best to our style,” Carpenter said of the song choice. “After we finished our remix, we asked them if they could also remix one of our songs in return, and they thought it was a great idea.” Carpenter could hear the strength of combining these two vastly different but stylistically symbiotic sounds and Chvrches was more than happy to oblige. They chose a standout track from Carpenter’s recent Lost Themes III album “Turning the Bones” and the resulting remix is equally as dynamic and unique. Collaborating across genres and generations these artists have honoured a deep respect from one another. The resulting singles will be available on limited edition 7” records while supplies last.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
