Just two years after forming in working class Glasgow, Scotland, synth-pop outfit Chvrches have become one of the buzziest bands of 2013. The trio's debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 recently, and the band scored themselves a coveted BBC Sound of 2013 nomination.
Fuse recently caught up with the band—Martin (synths, vocals), Lauren (lead vocals) and Iain (synths, guitar, bass)—who opened up about how the Internet helped Chvrches skyrocket to success. "I think the stars aligned for us just at the right time, and a lot of good things kind of came our way," Martin explained.
He continued, "After that initial burst when we put 'Lies' on the Internet as a free download, the shows got bigger and we got a chance to play some places that, ordinarily, we wouldn't get to go." Because of their success, Chvrches recently had the chance to open for Depeche Mode at various football stadiums in Europe. What a difference two years makes.
