I can’t remember where I first heard of Chvrches but I know that after looking up some of their songs it didn’t really matter. This group from Glasgow was formed in 2011 and consists of feature singer Lauren Mayberry and keyboardists/vocalists Iain Cook and Martin Doherty. If your wondering if my auto correct stopped working, it didn’t. According to Wikipedia the band choose to spell churches with a V in order to avoid confusion in internet searches. That, and it looks pretty damn cool. Described as electro-pop, Chvrches gets inspiration from Prince, Depeche Mode, and Kate Bush.
Chvrches is touring this summer! Check out their facebook page to see if they’re stopping in your neck of the woods. Maybe one day they’ll make their way to Alberta, fingers crossed.
The Recover EP was just released in March and I’m already waiting in anticipation for more groove worthy music from Chvrches.
