CD of The Week from Chvrches
Chvrches (pronounced "churches") are a Scottish synthpop band from Glasgow, formed in 2011. The group consists of Lauren Mayberry (lead vocals, synthesizers and samplers), Iain Cook (synthesizers, guitar, bass, vocals) and Martin Doherty (synthesizers, samplers, vocals). The Bones Of What You Believe is their debut album, following an EP released earlier this year. The record's title refers to the raw "creativity and effort" that served as the skeleton for the album, according to lead singer Lauren Mayberry.
