Chvrches: The Dome, Brighton
David Bennun, The Guardian, 17 November 2015
WHAT A CURIOUS, synthetic experience it is to see Chvrches. Not that there's ever anything amiss with pop feeling synthetic. What makes Chvrches odd is the disconnect between their live sound, a pulsating electronic wallop, and their pervasive sense of niceness. Everything about this band is black except its soul. This is vanilla EBM; goth for people who are afraid of the dark.
