SKIN + BONE.
CHURCHES are two boys and a girl from Glasgow, and that’s about all we know at this juncture. That, and the fact that debut single “Lies” is absolutely massive, a godless hurricane of kinetic pop energy that’s the kind of thing Neon Gold dreams are made of. Coming off like a post-apocalyptic Alphabeat as produced by Mark Foster, it’s an all-out sonic assault, carpet bombing synth flares blocking out the sun as they rain down over militaristic drums and an authoritative female vocal. Visceral and destructive, it’s a powerful debut that will have even the most skeptical pop listener believing in the power of CHURCHES in no time at all.
