5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the Year 14 Nov 2013
By Chvpels
Format:Audio CD
Unless someone has something hidden up their sleeve for the remaining month and a half then this album is by far the best album released this year. An almost perfect pop album executed brilliantly by 3 very talented individuals. Chvrches have set the bar exceptionally high.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chvrches raise the roof !! 18 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Glaswegian trio that make up 'Chvrches' are proving a force to be reckoned with on the 3-piece electronica circuit-giving the likes of 'Chase and Status' and 'Disclosure' some healthy competition.
'The Bones Of What You Believe' is quirky, contemporary and sharp with some beautifully crafted songs and musically, expressing a definite technological intent. The song writing is of such a level of maturity, that it has the feel of a third or fourth album rather than a debut! Vocalist Lauren Mayberry could hum the phonebook from cover to cover and still have you yearning for more.
A major plus for this album is that the tracks are in the realm of the radio edit rather than the 12inch, cutting straight to the lyrical point of the song/s.
The single 'Gun' released in the summer of 2013, is the perfect promo for the band, encompassing that vocal hook-based, synthesised style. Track 'Under The Tide' lends itself to a bit of role reversal courtesy of keyboard players Iain Cook/Martin Doherty providing fitting vocals to the backdrop of a tidy base-line.
A very promising addition to the current dance/pop and live music scene.

DiscJockey.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS MY CHVRCH ! 4 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD
In a quiet unassuming way, just knocking out one great song after another, without seeming effort, each song probably at least three times the complexity of an average pop song, this band has sky-rocketed to one of THE great bands of our age - EASILY one of the best bands ever to come out of Britain, let alone Scotland.

So out there, quietly, musical talent works at its extraordinary craft, transforming our head-space into a new dimension - a dimension called Chvrches, a mysterious alien spelling, a mysterious alien symbolism.

If I can guess what is happening here it is that MUSIC has taken a FRONT seat, and all the rest though it may be fun or important has been placed secondary.

How many great bands and great artists go on to produce canons largely populated with repetitive sparse musical pabulum - notably the U2's and Coldplay's of this world - capable of writing great songs, capable of writing great music, yet churning out disappointing tracts of strangely average works - a slavery to mass appeal maybe, the love of success itself, not of music - its like they are trying to 'compute' which will be the most 'cool' - that is sad.

But without effort Chvrches are 'cool' without even trying - they have taken the long road to success by creating actual good music.

Like the best synth pop music this album has vocals both angelic and street-wise, it has pathos yet bounce and energy, it has vitality. It shuns relying on simple chords patterns hanging off of catchy hooks, but instead surprises with unexpected changes in pace and rhythm, a finely woven texture underlies all of these songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ace 18 Nov 2013
By IanJC
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Highly recommended.
I wasn't a big fan of 80's influenced music (or at least I couldn't find a way in) until I heard a single off this on the radio.
I brought the CD when it came out and am still listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 18 Nov 2013
By Guy W

I have never been a fan of electronic music, but saw Chvrches on Jules Holland and was knocked out. I bought the CD on the strength of it, and have not regretted it for one second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talents from Scotland 4 April 2014
By Adam
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Best band I discovered in 2013. Glad I found them.
If you like electropop with a female vocalist, then you have to give them a listen or two.
