Lauren Mayberry and her band Chvrches will be a band to watch in the coming years. Lauren Mayberry along with her band mates Iain Cook and Martin Doherty formed the synthpop band in the autumn of 2011. From the very early days the Scottish trio knew they had something special.
After the highly successful internet release of their debut song “Lies” the band went out on a relentless tour across the globe for nearly two years performing songs from their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe which was released on September 20, 2013. Throughout their tour the crowds have increasingly become bigger and bigger which is a testament to their rising popularity, appreciation for their fans and general humbleness.
With all the positives and being in the public eye there will always be someone trying to bring you down. After taking enough online abuse, Mayberry wrote an article for The Guardian in response to the misogynist messages she has received. Mayberry is also the founder of a feminist collective called TYCI and fast becoming the voice of many female and male admirers for her role in the feminist movement. With her celebrity status she can help bring awareness to these issues that many suffer from.
With the band back in the studio recording their second album fans worldwide are already buzzing with anticipation. If you don’t know Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, Martin Doherty and their band Chvrches you will soon. Keep your eyes and ears open for their next album as they rocket their way to music stardom in the years to come.
