It’s no mystery as to why CHVRCHES is talked about so much in the indie circle. The Scottish, synthpop/ electronic band is growing in popularity and their single, “Recover” shows why. CHVRCHES, only just formed in 2011, first released “Recover” this past March on their EP named after the single- Recover. Their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, recently released last month is considered one of the best albums of the year so far by various music blogs and sites.
Lead singer, Lauren Mayberry’s voice is piercing and sharp but at the same time, girly and poppy. The lyrics explain a could be sad / uncertain situation, but Mayberry seems to have the upper hand when singing, “I’ll give you one more chance.” Mayberry’s singing is sad and yearning but strong. Although a sad context, the beat causes you to bop your head without meaning to. The song is super catchy and almost impossible to not get stuck in your head after a few listens.
If you are a fan of MNDR, Sky Ferreria, Purity Ring and Grimes, CHVRCHES will become your new obsession. The quartet’s audience is growing rapidly, so make sure to check them out and listen to “Recover” before they blow up and you’re the last one to know about them.
