Chvrches: NPR Front Row

March 21, 2013 Chvrches' bass-heavy pop sounds will be the soundtrack to many a barbecue this summer, but in the meantime, the Glaswegian trio got the crowd dancing at SXSW 2013. Watch the trio perform "The Mother We Share" at Austin's Red 7.

It can be easy to dismiss emerging artists when there's major music-blog hype surrounding them. However, when the Glaswegian band Chvrches took to the stage with a chopped-and-screwed remix of Prince's "Let's Go Crazy," the crowd had a good idea that something special was about to take place.

At Austin's Red 7, the trio performed a compact, synth-heavy dance set; based on the crowd's reception, Chvrches' bass-heavy pop sounds will be the soundtrack to many a barbecue this summer. Chvrches' debut full-length is due out this fall, but you can watch the band perform "The Mother We Share" here.
