CHVRCHES’ “The Mother We Share” Wins The Popjustice Twenty Quid Prize

a0dce5edd889fe2edfff5439d211b481 CHVRCHES’ “The Mother We Share” Wins The Popjustice Twenty Quid Prize

The best English single of the last year? So glad you asked. Reigning English pop music blog Popjustice has announced the results of their annual Twenty Quid Music Prize, which honors the best single by a British artist in the last year released in the last 12 months (got all that?), and amid a shortlist containing venerable girl group singles like Girls Aloud‘s “Something New,” MKS“Flatline,” Little Mix‘s “DNA” and The Saturdays“Gentleman,” the winning song was by a more roundly US-endorsed act: Glaswegian synth-poppers CHVRCHES took the top nod with “The Mother We Share,” their breakout single.

Notably, it wasn’t a commercial hit for them either here or in the UK, but it’s still an excellent choice. Coming in as runner-up was The Saturdays’ aforementioned “Gentleman,” with Duke Dumont and A*M*E‘s “Need U (100%)” in third.

For their part, CHVRCHES seemed pleased with it, tweeting the above picture with the caption, “Woooo!! Thanks to everyone who voted/argued!!! A new career high point. #HappyChvrches #TwentyQuid.” Aw, shucks.

Revisit the song below.
