Armed with a shattering new record and driven by a reaffirmed love for glassy, synthesised and wildly melodic pop, Scottish trio Chvrches will set the gold standard for this year’s festival. Despite the gloomy album title Love Is Dead, which singer Lauren Mayberry says relates to society’s “death of empathy”, it has been hailed as a major step forward for the band. Already riding high on the back of previous showstoppers like ‘The Mother We Share’ and ‘Clearest Blue’, these new tunes are brilliantly tailored to the stadiums and festivals that Chvrches are now accustomed to. Mayberry’s ecstatic stage energy is enveloped in a wash of light, colour and pulsing beats that sparkles in all the right places.
