SXSWfm Exclusive Interview: Chvrches

Written by Rory Burbeck | Tuesday, Jun 11, 2013

Good things have been happening - and quickly - for the Glaswegian trio known as Chvrches. The band has only been together for two years and their full length debut album won't be released until September at the earliest. But on the strength of a few singles and an EP called Recover, Chvrches have been enjoying a series of sold out club dates in their first full U.S. tour. Field Day in London and Sasquatch in Washington state were their first big festivals, but there are many more on their summer schedule.

Recipients of the first Grulke Prize for Developing International Act at SXSW this year, Chvrches returned to Austin last week for a sold out show at The Mohawk. Kevin Connor spent time with the band's Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty discussing their music, the quest for BBQ, and their cheerily obsessive love of Prince. You can hear that at 2pm and 8pm today CST here on SXSWfm.
