Chvrches – Every Open Eye (2015)

The Scottish group’s second album, following 2012’s “The Bones of What You Believe,” is just as strong as their first. There are standout tracks like “High Enough to Carry You Over” and “Keep You On My Side” which practically beg for limitless repeats, as well as some strong single-worthy songs like “Clearest Blue” and “Never Ending Circles.” The vocals are strong and engaged, and while the album starts to run out of steam in the late second half, it’s a terrific summertime album for fans of sophisticated pop music.
