Glasgow is pulling a coup! Typically known for moody indie rock, the Scottish city got all Swedish on us with Chvrches – a new three piece synth pop group fronted by Lauren Mayberry. Surely some UK record exec read my comments some weeks back about the perceived decline of the Glasgow music scene and said “we’ve got to put an end to this shit.” (Surely).
Gorgeous and surprisingly disarming, Mayberry’s voice pairs well with the synthy clouds she plays around in. I still have no clue what “The Mother We Share” is even about, but it hardly matters. We’ll be keeping an eye on their Souncloud page for more upcoming jams.
