    I've always thought "Self Control" was her one-hit-wonder.
    They played "Gloria" in American Crime Story and I thought it was an odd choice for an American series, I had no idea it was actually a smash hit over there.

    CHVRCHΞS

    ch.jpg

    Chvrches (pronounced "churches") are a band from Glasgow, Scotland, formed in September 2011

    Mostly deriving from the synth-pop genre, Chvrches also incorporate indietronica, indie pop, and electronic dance into their sound.

    kj.JPG

    Neon Gold described their sound as "a godless hurricane of kinetic pop energy". Kitty Empire of The Observer wrote they "make accessible electro-pop that's only just short of truly brilliant". Wired noted following Every Open Eye's release that the album "cements the group as today's heir apparent to Depeche Mode, New Order, and other titans of British electronic music."

    [​IMG]

    The band stated that their heroes were David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Iggy Pop, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Tangerine Dream and Nick Cave. They are also influenced by acts such as Madonna, Eurythmics, Throbbing Gristle, Prince, Tubeway Army, Robyn, Laurie Anderson, Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins, Death Cab for Cutie, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Cyndi Lauper, Whitney Houston and Elliott Smith.

    I'm a newcomer to the band.

    My mate was telling me how much he loved their music after the first album and I checked it out but never cared for it. Then last year they were supporting The killers in Glasgow and after I rolled my eyes at the thought of them, I never gave it another thought.

    At the concert, I was just waiting for The Killers and when CHVRCHES came on I found myself instantly attracted to the lead and even commenting on how she reminded me of Clare Grogan (Altered Images). By the time they were onto a third song, I was mesmerised by how brilliantly 80s they sounded. The rest of their gig went down really well and as soon as I was back at my computer I was on YT checking out the songs they had played, then I went to iTunes and bought all three albums.
