Written by Rory Burbeck | May 2, 2013

CHVRCHES have had an impressive 2013 so far. Based in Glasgow, Scotland, the band is #5 on BBC’s Sound of 2013 and received the inaugural Grulke Prize for Developing Non-US Act. CHVRCHES have also received exceptional reviews on their new EP, Recover. Contactmusic.com describes the band’s sound as “likeable electro-pop...devoid of many of the genres cliches,” and the Shields Gazette says the EP is “an enticing teaser” to CHVRCHES’ upcoming full-length album. While we wait for details to emerge on the new album, you can listen to CHVRCHES’ new EP, Recover, right here on SXSWfm!
