History Edit

Origins and formation Edit

In 2003, musicians Iain Cook and Martin Doherty met as students at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.[5] Doherty was a member of the band Julia Thirteen, and asked Cook to produce the band's 2006 extended play (EP) With Tired Hears.[5][6] Although Julia Thirteen never recorded any further material, the experience proved vital, as Cook and Doherty formed a mutual interest in eventually starting their own project.[5] A few years later, Doherty joined Cook as a member of Aereogramme, but the band broke up in 2007 due to a lack of exposure.[6][7] After the dissolution of Aereogramme, Doherty then became a touring member for the band the Twilight Sad, but quit in 2012 after he grew tired of playing someone else's music. He had planned to retrain as a history teacher before reconnecting with Cook, and the two formed the music project that would eventually become Chvrches.[8]

A few years after Aereogramme broke up, Cook took an interest in the electronic sound of the band Emeralds. Cook bought a Minimoog Voyager and began "playing around with soundscapes and stuff like that ... kind of with a view of doing stuff from the '80s".[9] In September 2011, he produced an EP for the band Blue Sky Archives, and asked the band's vocalist and drummer Lauren Mayberry if she would be interested in singing backing vocals for an electronic music project he and Doherty were working on. Mayberry was intrigued by the offer, as neither of them had any background in electronic music. "For me it was nice to write over different instruments and not have to try to sing and scream over live drums and a Marshall bass stack," said Mayberry.[10]

The three musicians quickly bonded, and spent the next few months writing and recording songs in a basement studio.[10][11] During these sessions, Mayberry wrote the lyrics and hooks, Doherty provided melodic ideas, and Cook produced the songs.[10] Once the sessions had concluded, the three decided that they worked well enough together to try and perform the songs as a band.[12] The initial plan was to have Doherty sing lead vocals, while Mayberry would sing backing vocals. Mayberry was eventually promoted to lead vocalist after Cook and Doherty heard her singing abilities.[12] In addition to her new role, Mayberry became the band's frontwoman, and gave the other members a reading list about the inner workings of the music industry.[13]

The band members settled on the name Chvrches (stylised as CHVRCHΞS), which uses the Roman letter "v" instead of a "u". This spelling was chosen to differentiate themselves from actual churches in online search results.[14] There was no conscious decision to have a name with religious connotations; instead, the band members felt that the name gave "a strong vibe that could be interpreted in many different ways".[11] Mayberry also noted that the v is a subtle nod to band names from the influential witch house genre of music, including bands such as SALEM and Ritualz. "We did consider putting upside down crosses at either side of our name, but that would have dated us, I think" said Mayberry.[15]

2012–2014: Breakthrough success, and The Bones of What You Believe Edit

Chvrches performing in 2012

Doherty noted how Chvrches began as a studio only project, saying: "There wasn't really any goal other than to put a song out on the internet and see what kind of response we got".[16] In May 2012, Chvrches posted its debut song "Lies" on the Neon Gold Records blog.[12] Instead of a picture of the band members, the song was accompanied by a picture of nuns in masks, which added to the perceived religiosity of the Chvrches name.[17] The response was almost immediate; "Lies" reached number one on the MP3 aggregate blog The Hype Machine, and similarly received constant airplay on SoundCloud and BBC Radio 1.[10] The band members were amazed by the reaction to "Lies". "It was unbelievable, way beyond what we expected," said Doherty.[16]

Despite the popularity of "Lies", Chvrches had yet to perform a live show.[12] There was a growing expectation that the band would eventually perform live, although the band members were anxious at the prospect.[18] To curtail this fear, Chvrches played its first two live shows under the name Shark Week, before making its official debut at the Glasgow School of Art in July.[10] When Chvrches began to attract A&R representatives, Mayberry was dismayed that most of them wanted to make her the central figure of the band; one representative called her the next Pixie Lott.[13] From the beginning, the band's goal was to give equal treatment to all three members, and to not have any one person become the focal point. As Doherty stated: "We could have sold 200,000 more albums if we'd hidden Iain and I from view and put Lauren on the cover of every magazine. We ended up doing it in an indie band style. We broke through via word of mouth. It was about doing it in an honest, right way."[19] This mentality meant that the band had to decline early offers for photo shoots and interviews that excluded Cook and Doherty.[19]

Chvrches had already recorded eight other songs by the time "Lies" was released, in case listeners wanted to hear more music.[20] One of these songs, "The Mother We Share", was released on 5 November 2012 as the band's debut single.[21] "The Mother We Share" was similarly well received by listeners, and was downloaded more than 32,000 times by September 2013.[22] Around this time, Chvrches co-manager Campbell McNeil attempted to contact Glassnote Records founder Daniel Glass, and gave Glass copies of "Lies" and another song called "Recover".[22] After travelling to the UK to see Chvrches live, Glass signed the band to a recording contract in January 2013. To promote Chvrches, managers McNeil and Danny Rogers launched a nonstop touring schedule which included several international performances. Two months after signing with Glassnote, Chvrches made its North American debut at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, where the band won a Grulke Prize for best non-American act.[22][23]

On 6 February 2013, Chvrches premiered the second single "Recover".[24] It was followed by Recover EP, out on 25 March 2013 in the UK via Goodbye/Virgin and 26 March 2013 in the US via Glassnote.[24] In March 2013 Chvrches performed at SXSW.[25][26][27] They also won the Inaugural Grulke Prize (for Developing Non-US Act) at SXSW.[28]

On 19 June 2013, Chvrches made their US TV debut performing "The Mother We Share" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.[29][30] On 15 July 2013, they released the single "Gun".[31] In July 2013 Chvrches supported Depeche Mode on four shows from The Delta Machine Tour 2013.[32] In September 2013, they also performed "The Mother We Share" on Later... with Jools Holland.[33]

On 23 September 2013, the band released their debut studio album The Bones of What You Believe on Virgin and Goodbye Records.[34] On the critical aggregator website Metacritic, the album received a score of 80, based on 39 reviews.[35]

On 30 September 2013, Mayberry penned an op-ed piece in The Guardian on what she perceived as sexist remarks directed towards her through the band's social media sites.[36]

Chvrches covered Bauhaus' song "'Bela Lugosi's Dead" for the ending credits of the film Vampire Academy.[37][38] "The Mother We Share" was featured in the opening video for the 2014 Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony in Glasgow, Scotland, on 23 July 2014.[39]

2015–2016: Every Open Eye Edit

The band started recording their second album in January 2015,[41] and on 5 June 2015 announced they had completed work on it.[42] Recording was conducted in the same Glasgow facility used for The Bones, which received a major upgrade to recording gear and an increase in the instrumental variety for the second album.[43] If The Bones of What You Believe was recorded with the only three synths they had at that time (Minimoog Voyager, Prophet '08, Roland Juno-106), the success of the debut album allowed the band to follow their passion for synths by adding a lot more to play with on Every Open Eye: Korg MS-20 mini, Korg Polysix, Roland Jupiter-8, Moog Sonic Six, Oberheim OB-Xa and DSI Prophet 12.[44]

On 16 July 2015, the band revealed the release date, cover art, and track listing for the new album, entitled Every Open Eye.[45] The following day they released the album's first single, "Leave a Trace".[45] The album was released on 25 September 2015.[46][47]

To promote the upcoming album, the band wiped all of their social media pages, before posting a short video containing new music captioned "GET IN".[61][62] The post was accompanied by a link to a Facebook Messenger page with the band.[63] On 31 January 2018, BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac announced "Get Out" to be her Hottest Record in the World, giving the single its world premiere.[64] The album also includes a song titled "My Enemy" featuring Matt Berninger of The National, released 28 February 2018.[65][66] The track list was unveiled on 26 February 2018.[67] On 29 March 2018, the band released "Never Say Die" as the third single from the album.[68] On 10 April 2018, the band released "Miracle" as the fourth single from the album.[69][70] Love Is Dead was released on 25 May 2018.[66][68][71] On 9 October 2018, the band released "Graffiti" as the fifth single from the album.[72][73]
