Talk about a fast start. Scottish synthpop trio Chvrches has been in existence for around two years, and they’ve already scored big. The band’s debut album, The Bones of What You Believe just dropped this last year, and set off more buzz than a rock-bombarded beehive. So dig in, check these dates, and start scrabbling for tickets.
It’s pronounced “churches”, by the way. You’re welcome.
And we’ll forever love them, thanks to this cover of the Game of Thrones theme song. Chvrches’ unusual blend of emo and synthpop makes for a heady listen, and apparently also one hell of a live show. They’ve been tearing up UK charts of late, and the latest tour promises to build on what was a true blockbuster year for the band.
Don’t be too dismayed by the skimpy dates below, there’s plenty more to come, you’re only seeing the tip of a truly awesome iceberg. Promise.
