Chvrches bandElectro pop Scottish trio from Glasgow, CHVRCHES have finally released their long awaited debut album The Bones of What You Believe.
Kicking it off with a single that they released last year, The Mother We Share is a palatial mix of sparkly synths and hard hitting percussion. The tune hooks on to you in the first 10 seconds.
Lies and Recover, released earlier, are already chart favorites with over a few million hits on YouTube, ayou are transported to that perfect carefree mind space.
In Under the Tide and You Got Light, we get to hear some male vocals more audibly although

it is not as impressive as lead singer Lauren Mayberry’s ethereal, delicate yet fierce voice.
The album title itself is borrowed from the lyrics of one of their bonus tracks, Strong Hand –
Give me the bones of
What you believe,
Maybe they’ll save you
From me predominantly
The Bones of What You Believe is one those rare dynamic pop energy ensembles that have clear influences from the 80’s music era. Powerful ballads, strong vocals and heartfelt lyrics – they brilliantly make it work for these times.
