It's rare a synth-pop act has a serious chance to become as wildly popular as its '80s predecessors, but CHVRCHES embody that prospect. It took just three singles to catapult the Welsh trio (pronounced "churches") to an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and primetime spots at a handful of European festivals this summer. Their sugary melodic punch features frontwoman Lauren Mayberry's wounded-angel tone, the galactic synth progressions, and the scintillating (not to mention dubstep-influenced) drum patterns. With their self-produced debut, The Bones of What You Believe, due September 23, this show will be at least in part a preview of their new(est) material just ahead of its release. With Orlando producer XXYYXX. 18+.
