CHVRCHES old style electronica is not normally my cup of tea, but they are so good at it, with songs so catchy that their hooks work their way into your brain, well mine at least. Combined with Lauren’s magnetic charm and the fact they are probably Scotland’s biggest musical export just now, I had to go see.
Arriving early I managed to sneak right down the front and the great view and sound made for an immersive experience rather than sat at the back where my ticket was. Had seen support band The 9th Wave at Sneaky Pete’s and was impressed again.
CHVRCHES though, have built up their act and set to great stadium level effect. I found out I knew many more songs than I thought and really enjoyed it, more than I expected. Brilliant!
