Video: Chvrches - The Mother We Share

One of the nice things about writing a second-rate music blog is discovering a new band, then watching them spread their wings and take off. And that's exactly what's happening with Scot synth syndicate Chvrches.

It's 11 months since I first mentioned them, via the gorgeous single The Mother We Share. A couple of months later, I went to see them play a tiny gig in London and noted that frontwoman Lauren Mayberry could "grow into a superb frontwoman, given a little more time".

Judging by the band's latest video, that time has come. Lauren still does the coquettish doe-eyed thing, but there's a moment when she arches an eyebrow and stares defiantly down the camera that will send shivers down your spine.

The video, which all goes a bit Tron at the end, is for the re-release of The Mother We Share. It's due out a week before the band's debut album, The Bones Of What You Believe, on 16 September. If you bought the song last time around, you might notice it's been given a scrub around the ears for the "official" release. Subtly, though. They don't ruin it or anything.
