Holy mother!  Work has certainly been taxing lately.  But, there was one thing I could look forward to at the end of this hump day: CHVRCHES!   The best part is that I don’t need to wait ’til Sunday to pay respects to this divine deliverance.  Chvrches’ full album finally became available in the US this past Tuesday, September 24th and I simply could not wait to give it a listen.  With their released singles Gun and The Mother We Share, I only had high expectations for their album The Bones of What You Believe.  Chvrches definitely did not let me down.  Lauren Mayberry’s adolescent vocals bring all those raw feelings that come associated with those younger years: spirit, vulnerability, spontaneity.  Layered upon a creative myriad of electronics, each song brings their lyrics to life.  Now, have yourself a listen!

Chvrches had a sold out show earlier this year in San Francisco.  They will be returning to the Bay Area at the Fox Theater in Oakland on Nov 17th.  Unfortunately, they will not be passing through NYC during this tour.  Womp womp.  I guess I will have to be the next one in line to catch a live show by this amazing group.
