Music I Like: CHVRCHES (2011–)
A relatively new electronic band consisting of Iain Cook, Martin Doherty and the main vocalist Lauren Mayberry. I bumped into this band while reading the Guardian one day, randomly clicking on an article about Internet bullying. Turns out Lauren had received a lot of terrible messages on the net and had written an article about the matter. I decided to check them out on YouTube and was blown away. I bought their album The Bones of What You Believe the same day and the next one, Every Open Eye, when it was available. As a fan of many kinds of electronic music their tracks really click for me. I really enjoy Lauren’s singing voice, and the sound that accompanies it is really good both technically and musically. I think my favorite moment is when the melody hits in the song Tether (the first example below).
