Artist on the Rise: CHVRCHES
by Shea Geyer (Pharmacy), published January 17th 2013
If the single “The Mother We Share” is any indication of what we can expect from Glasgow’s CHVRCHES in 2013, we’re in for quite a treat. The synth-pop trio, fronted by female vocalist Lauren Mayberry, is among the most exciting new bands to emerge from the UK in the past year. CHVRCHES opened for Passion Pit across the pond this past fall and are about to embark on their own UK tour. They are currently working on their debut album, so keep an eye out for a release date in the near future. In the meantime, check out “The Mother We Share,” and feel free to click play as many times in a row as you want. If “The Mother We Share” leaves you craving more, check out “Lies.”
