Band Feature: Chvrches

Words by Elizabeth Tolbert

Meet Chvrches, the band everyone is talking about suddenly. The synthopop band, featuring members Iain Cook, Martin Doherty, and Lauren Mayberry, are characterized by the intense electronic sounds and ethereal vocals that make up their unique music. Chvrches burst onto the scene last year with their breakout song “Lies”. Since then, things have escalated quickly for the Scotland natives with a showcase at SXSW this year and sold out headlining tours in both the UK and the US. Currently, the trio is putting the finishing touches on their debut album ‘The Bones of What You Believe’, due out this fall. Chvrches recently released a video for their song “The Mother We Share” and will be playing a bunch of festivals beginning August 10th. Check out the video and tour dates below!
