Chvrches @ Liverpool Music Week - Review

Liverpool Music Week came to a close on Friday night and Camp and Furnace hosted the internationally famed Glasgow trio Chvrches for their first ever Liverpool gig and the capacity crowd gave them a wonderful welcome.

So eagerly awaited was the gig, that there was a queue to get in to the location itself.

The trio – Mayberry on vocals, Iain Cook and Martin Doherty played all 13 of the tracks on last year’s debut album The Bones of What You Believe backed by a huge and impressive neon and strobe light show, which lit the room up like a Christmas tree.

Lead singer Mayberry performed with vigour and enthusiasm, and for a petite little figure she certainly had no lack of energy on stage and her rapport with the crowd was obvious, taking time out between songs to chat on to the crowd.

Obviously the signature tracks Recover and The Mother We Share got the biggest response but all of the tracks played were greeted with a wonderful warm reception. Ending with an encore of 3 more songs only heightened the intensity of the gig and left the audience wanting more.

The set came in just under an hour but this was the ideal time for the band to influence the crowd of fans and first timers to Chvrches alike and was a fitting end to what has been, from all accounts, a very successful 10th year for Liverpool Music week. 

With this band closing the event they have certainly upped their game.
