Sound Of - 2013, CHVRCHES

CHVRCHES capture the No. 5 spot in Sound Of 2013

Iain Cook, Lauren Mayberry and Martin Doherty are CHVRCHES - all caps a must.

If the Glasgow trio's moniker isn't the most conveniently pronounceable name of recent tipster times, that's just another reason to let their music do the talking.

They've experience in their ranks - Doherty toured the world with The Twilight Sad, and Cook was formerly a member of Aereogramme. Both acts attracted admirable fanbases; but fans should expect something entirely new when approaching the music of CHVRCHES, more likely to channel Prince than post-rock pyrotechnics.

This is electro-pop that shimmers only when the tears are washed from its speaker cones. Debut single The Mother We Share rightly caused something of a stir with its accessible yet ambitious synth angles, positioned somewhere between Robyn and The Knife.

Undeniably sad but also euphoric, it's a captivating calling card that sets them apart in 2013.
