OK, Chvrches, what’s the deal with the ‘v’. You never used to have it, your SoundCloud username used to be ‘churchestheband’. I really think we all need a say in this. I mean, if I’m going to be writing about you more, and I imagine I will be, I need to know if I have to use the ‘v’. Is that just a stylised thing, or is that actually how you are spelling Churches now? It’s like CHEW LiPS all over again.
Chvrches new single, their second song after the stunning Lies, is The Mother We Share, and while Lies seems to bubble up slowly through the internet, the announcement of this new track seemed to break the blogosphere for a time. This is a good thing. If an bands around right now deserves some blogosphere breaking attention it’s Chvrches. The Mother We Share is a nice mixture of bright, but brooding electronics tempered by Lauren Mayberry’s sweet vocal. A tad more euphoric than the industrial stomp of Lies, showing a different facet to Chvrches. There is no doubt in our minds, Chvrches are going to be huge.

I’ll tell you what, Chvrches, lets make a deal. You get to keep the ‘v’ if you promise never to use a △? Sound good?
