Glasgow group CHVRCHES is making well-deserved waves amongst electro-pop music buffs. Last March they crossed the Atlantic for their first US performance at the massive South by Southwest festival in Austin, TX. They've been compared to Purity Ring, which isn't a surprise considering their synth-heavy sound and leading lady Lauren Mayberry's melodious, ethereal vocals.

The three piece is in the midst of their first official US tour in support of their debut EP Recover and a handful of singles like "The Mother We Share." A full-length is awaiting its release slated for September, ensuring that CHVRCHES will continue to be a much-talked about success story through the end of 2013.

Songs performed: "Recover," "Now Is Not The Time" and "The Mother We Share"
