Scottish synth-pop band, CHVRCHΞS, bringing their first solo concert <CHVRCHΞS LOVΞ IS DΞAD ASIA TOUR 2019 HONG KONG> to AsiaWorld-Expo, Runway 11 in Hong Kong on Tuesday, 20 August 2019. Tickets will be available for public sale starting 10am Thursday, 4 July 2019 via Cityline and Tom Lee Music Stores.
Debuted in 2013, CHVRCHΞS was formed by Lauren Mayberry (lead vocals and percussions), Martin Doherty (vocals and synthesizers) and Iain Cook (synthesizers and bass guitar). The band name “CHVRCHΞS” uses the Roman letter “V” instead of “U”, which the spelling was chosen to differentiates themselves from actual churches in online search results. The band members felt that the name gave a strong vibe that could be interpreted in many ways. Mostly deriving from the synth-pop genre, CHVRCHΞS also incorporates indie pop, indietronica, and electronic dance into their sound.
Before their debut, CHVRCHΞS released their single “Lies” in 2012 and posted it online for free download, which created unbelievable responses. They made their debut stage performance in July 2013 and their debut single “The Mother We Share” was released in November the same year, which were all critically acclaimed. In December, the band ranked fifth on the Longlist of ‘Sound of 2013’ by the BBC.
All three members from CHVRCHΞS are extremely talented in playing different musical instruments other than what they have been accountable for in the band. Wrapped in with enormous experiences of Doherty and Cook in recording and producing music, the first two albums, The Bones of What You Believe, and Every Open Eye, were self-produced. Not until their third album Love in Dead did they collaborate with Greg Kurstin (Sia, Beck, Foo Fighters), who is an American record producer and multiple Grammy winner. To co-produce the album, the band have also embraced Steve Mac (One Direction, Ed Sheearn, Shakira), a renowned British album producer and Brit Awards winner, which further integrated the music of CHVRCHΞS into the mainstream vibes.
Apart from producing their own albums, CHVRCHΞS have also involved in producing soundtracks for electronic games, movie and drama series, such as “Dead Air” from the movie “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I”, “Clearest Blue” and “Bury It” from the video game “Forza Horizon 3”, etc.
Perfectly matching Lauren Mayberry’s young look and lively voice with the musical talents of Doherty and Cook, they will definitely bring to their fans a refreshing live performance in the hot summer season that no one should ever miss.
