TUNE CHVRCHES - RECOVER
CHVRCHES announce the release of the RECOVER EP, via Goodbye Records / Virgin Records in the UK as a digital download on 25th March (via Glassnote in the US). The EP will also be available in the UK as a limited edition 12-inch vinyl on 20 April for Record Store Day.
Combining indie sensibilities and aesthetics with barbed pop hooks and an unhealthy obsession with Prince, CHVRCHES take elements of classic electronica, hip hop and post-punk, and yet sound like none of the above. Their blend of classic and modern analogue synthesisers, bruised beats and crude vocal sampling came to the fore in their debut single ‘The Mother We Share’, released in late 2012, as it did in ‘Lies’ their first track that seeped onto the internet earlier in the year. CHVRCHES were voted #5 in the BBC Sound of 2013, #2 in the UK Blog Sound of 2013 and were included in XFM’s Great X-Pectations for 2013.
CHVRCHES will play a run of UK and North American headline shows in late-Feb and March, taking in a trip to South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, full details announced shortly. Confirmed UK dates include: 27th Feb ICA London / 25th Feb Ruby Lounge Manchester (Both Sold-Out)
