Following their landmark Alexandra Palace show tonight, CHVRCHES return to London early next year.
The Glaswegian synthpop trio will bring big hits like ‘The Mother We Share’, ‘Gun’, and ‘Leave A Trace’ to Royal Albert Hall on 31 March 2016.
The band – Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty – are currently touring in support of their second album, ‘Every Open Eye’, released in September, exactly two years after ‘The Bones of What You Believe’ heralded their arrival.
Their debut album went on to sell over 500 000 copies worldwide and set up an exhaustive touring schedule that saw the band perform 364 shows in two years.
Sonically, ‘Every Open Eye’ develops CHVRCHES’ signature style, juxtaposing the light and the dark, creating their own brand of twisted pop music that merges the organic with the electronic, molding sounds and ideas forged over two years on the road into an electronic-pop record with a heart.
Lyrically, Every Open Eye is not a break up album. It is a record about past heartbreaks and getting over them (‘Leave A Trace’), being unapologetic and not being told what to do or who to be (‘Bury It’, ‘Never Ending Circles’, ‘Playing Dead’), and holding on to the good and letting go of the bad (‘Down Side Of Me’, ‘Clearest Blue’, ‘Afterglow’).
