CHVRCHΞS Biography (Wikipedia)

Chvrches (pronounced and written as "churches" in Roman form and stylised as CHVRCHΞS) are a British synthpop band from Glasgow, formed in 2011. The band consists of Lauren Mayberry (lead vocals, drums, additional synthesisers, samplers), Iain Cook (synthesisers, guitar, bass, vocals) and Martin Doherty (synthesisers, samplers, vocals).

Two years after their formation, Chvrches released Recover EP in March 2013, which included hits "The Mother We Share" and "Recover". Their debut studio album, The Bones of What You Believe, was released later on 20 September 2013, while the band was ranked fifth on the Sound of 2013 list by BBC. Two years later, on 25 September 2015, the group released their second album, Every Open Eye.

Mostly deriving from the synthpop genre, Chvrches also incorporates indietronica, indie pop, and electronic dance into their sound. The name of the band came out of interest within the members and does not relate or indicate any religious views.
