TGIF: Chvrches

With only a tiny pocketful of songs, Scottish alternative electronic band Chvrches (pronouned Churches) have quickly established themselves as one of the most shamelessly addictive presences in my music library. Lauren Mayberry, the pixie of a front woman whose piercing voice rotates between sugary and assertive, is the perfect juxtaposition against the thundering snaps of percussion and shimmery synth melodies.

Formed in 2011 and with only an EP to boot, the attention the Glasgow threesome have already gathered is impressive - grabbing a spot on one of BBC's Sound of 2013 list and touring as the opening act for fellow synth-pop vets Passion Pit.

Here are a few of (read: some of the only) Chvrches ditties around. Happy Friday!
