CHVRCHES

If You Like: Purity Ring, The Knife, Grimes

Purity Ring showed us that in this day and age, electro-pop can be creepy, weird, and fun all at the same time. Now, Scottish group CHVRCHES is adding to the subgenre with a poppier, more accessible touch. The track "Lies" incorporates videogame bleeps with singer Lauren Mayberry's slightly-accented powerful pipes while "The Mother We Share" chops up her voice and has a huge, stadium, echoey feel. Like Purity Ring, they have generated a huge amount of buzz from very few tracks. Check out why below.
