CVRCHES: worth a listen, on and off the stage.

Formed in Glasgow, this stunning synthpop isn’t the sound you’d expect to find in my speakers. I’ve had such a love-hate relationship with “newer” forms of music, particularly when they’re enhanced or even defined by computerized samples and digital instruments. Yet I’m finding SO MANY acts within those realms who are intelligent, socially-conscious, and truly talented. All the more reason to press play before you judge!

CVRCHES have a lush trance not to be messed with. Lauren, Iain and Martin have teamed up to create three EPs and one full-length album (The Bones of What You Believe, 2013). It’s always so exciting to see new bands at the start. You wonder where their music is going to take them.

Most recently CVRCHES came into the cyber-spotlight when Lauren spoke out against online misogyny in a blog post. A treat for the temporal AND frontal lobes? Yes please!
