One of this year’s biggest buzz bands will be lighting up the South Side Ballroom stage this Saturday! CHVRCHES (pronounced “churches”), is a Scottish synthopop trio whose unique electronic sound has been described as “a hurricane of kinetic pop energy”. The band’s first studio album, The Bones of What You Believe, debuted in September and was immediately heralded by many as one of 2013’s best albums. The band won Best Developing Non-U.S. Act at SXSW earlier this year and made their U.S. TV debut in July on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and performed two songs from their album last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Mother We Share and Lies, their soon to be released new single. Not only does CVRCHES master the bass-heavy electronic dance music, but infuses strong, meaningful lyrics, sung hypnotically by lead vocalist, Lauren Mayberry. CVRCHES’ light show is equally enticing described as “pure eye candy. A swirling, pulsating mix of colors that is perfectly in time with the constantly shifting tempos.”
As if CVRCHES isn’t enough, BASECAMP is the opening act! This Nashville-based trio’s recently released EP, Emmanuel, is reaping critical acclaim for its unique artistry of marrying haunting R&B vocals with meaningful lyrics and electronic stage production. With this as BASECAMP’s Dallas debut, be one of the first to see what many are saying is the next groundbreaking style in music!
