There are a lot of bands pushing the synth-fueled indie pop sound, but few are doing it as well as CHVRCHES. Like Passion Pit a few years ago, CHVRCHES are becoming a group that it's impossible not to compare other bands to. Their sound is bright and energetic, but the songwriting is strong enough to override the knee-jerk temptation of dismissing this music simply as synth-pop. These songs would translate in any style, and that's the thing about CHVRCHES that makes them so much more compelling than the dozens of other groups who fuse synths and pop.
