Bands like CHVRCHES shouldn’t work at festivals like Reading. Sure, it may have tried to diversify in recent years, but this is a rock festival, right? And yet, despite the odds, they’re smashing it. Of course they are.
See, CHVRCHES ascent has been nothing less than astounding. If they’ve put a step wrong, it’s gone unnoticed. With only two albums to pull from, every moment feels like a hit. ‘Gun’, ‘Empty Threat’ and ‘The Mother We Share’ all bringing genuine festival highlights.
With another under their belt, there’s no reason CHVRCHES can’t make that final step up. One things for sure, they’re more than up to the task.
