The Scottish electro-pop trio Chvrches brought a stripped-down setup to its SXSW Radio Day Stage showcase Friday, as it rearranged new and old songs in a nuanced, more minimal fashion compared to the arena-ready sound of the trio's albums. Chvrches peppered its five-song set for VuHaus with songs from its most recent album, Every Open Eye, as well as its 2014 debut, The Bones Of What You Believe. Watch performances of "Leave A Trace" and "Never Ending Circles" below.
