If the name Chvrches (and yes, it is pronounced ‘Churches’) is new to these pages, then I have featured the band members in different guises before.

The band were put together by Martin Doherty from the Twilight Sad, and Iain Cook, once of Aereogramme and now of the Unwinding Hours. The vocals come courtesy of Blue Sky Archives’ Lauren Mayberry.

On the basis of one tune -‘Lies’ -they set the blogosphere alight, leading to an excellent feature over at The Pop Cop, sadly too many were quick to sneer at the next big thing.

But this tune stands on its’ own terms:

This is another awesome tune ‘The Mother We Share’

They featured on Vic Galloway’s Radio Scotland show this evening, follow this link to listen to the session when it goes up, very very soon.
