Playlist: What is Chvrches listening to?

On deceptively hopeful third album Love is Dead, out Friday, Chvrches throws an apocalyptic dance party. Teaming with super-producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia), the Scottish trio takes their sound to new heights of pop euphoria even as they ring the death knell for romance and civility in politics.

To mark the release, bandmates Lauren Mayberry, Martin Doherty and Iain Cook shared a playlist of current favorites with USA TODAY.

SGL, Now Now

This track is on their new album that just came out and I really love it. Cacie Dalager's voice is beautiful and her lyrics break my heart. – Mayberry

Cold War, Cautious Clay

I heard this track when I was randomly scrolling through Spotify, and was grabbed by his voice and the production right away. – Doherty

This is America, Childish Gambino

It feels like this is Donald Glover's time. The man seems to be a creative dynamo right now. The power of this song and the video with its juxtaposition of modern African dance with sudden, shocking violence feels so brave and honest and just what needs to be said at this time. – Cook

No Tears Left To Cry, Ariana Grande

We saw Ariana live last year and her vocals are just insane. I really admire how outspoken she is, too — something that a lot of pop stars on her level would be afraid to do. – Mayberry

Pynk, Janelle Monae (feat. Grimes)

Janelle is such a unique voice in music, and I love that she is always challenging herself and pushing boundaries. I was excited about (new album) Dirty Computer for a long time and it didn't disappoint. – Mayberry

Falling Into Me, Let’s Eat Grandma

This is a band I came across about two years ago. They're childhood friends who have an amazing dynamic as musicians. Their album is coming out soon, too, I think. – Doherty

Not My Baby, Alvvays

We all love Alvvays and we were lucky enough to play some shows with them a couple years back, so can confirm they are lovely people, as well as great songwriters. Molly Rankin's vocal is just as perfect live, too. – Mayberry

Accelerate, Christina Aguilera

I have loved Christina for a long time and this new direction is really interesting. I feel like she could sing any genre and it would still sound uniquely hers. She was so ahead of her time in terms of the respect and equality she demanded as a female and an artist, and what she was talking about in her music. I feel like the music industry is only now vaguely starting to catch up with her. – Mayberry

22 (Over Soon), Bon Iver

I read that Justin Vernon was suffering pretty bad writer's block before he made this album (22, A Million), and this song was something of a creative breakthrough moment which lead to the weirder, more electronic approach that characterised the rest of the album. – Cook

Better Not (featuring Wafia), Louis The Child

I am obsessed with this song right now. I listen to a lot of somewhat morose music, but this song actually makes me happy. – Doherty
