If you’re into electronic music, synthpop, and/or alternative dance music, you’re in for a treat. The up-and-coming Scottish band Chvrches will be playing on Tuesday, September 29th at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park. The band, known for the political stand that its lead singer has taken towards derogatory comments she has received, is touring to promote their new album, Every Open Eye. If you know them, this is a great chance to see them in person; if they’re new to you, this is a great chance to come and see what all the fuss is about!
Safe as Chvrches
The band was formed in 2011 by Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty after several successful collaborations by these musicians who had previously worked apart from each other. They have since garnered a large fan base, primarily on the internet, and made waves with both their music and their outspoken defense of their lead singer against comments made on their Facebook page. They have now released two albums, The Bones of What We Believe (2013), and Every Open Eye (2015). Both albums are available on their site.
On CD or LP, This Album is Yum-E
The latest album (Every Open Eye) came out just a few days ago on September 25th, and has already gotten very positive reviews. The sound is supposed to be clear, the beats resounding, and the chorus explosive. The album contains such songs as Never Ending Circles, Make Them Gold (an empowerment anthem), and Playing Dead. Some of these songs are to be played at their concert on the 29th — go check it out!
With all that New York has to offer within itself, it can be fun to see a spectacle — and listen to some nice sounds — from outside. So if you’re looking for something refreshing, this Scottish band is certainly the ticket and a new voice in the music world. Take Seastreak across the water to arrive in comfort and style at this event.
Sea you Soon!
