Between Lorde and Miley Cyrus the music scene has been pretty dominated over the past few weeks. I’ve seen more Wrecking Ball parodies than I care for and there’s enough a cappella covers of Royals to make a greatest hits album with.
So it was refreshing when this song came on the radio, Lies, by Chrvches. They’re described as a pop synthetic band from Glasgow fronted by Lauren Mayberry, who’s already speaking out about misogyny in the music business and good for her.
They’ve been together a few years now, but they’re starting to get noticed now and deservedly so. Lies is a really catchy song, reminiscent of 80s beats, and a great introduction to a band which I think might well hit it large next year.
