Their first Canadian tour date on this leg of their tour, Glasgow electro poppers CHVRCHES expressed their love for Toronto in music form on Wednesday night. A super packed Hoxton bobbed along to hits like “Recover” and “Lies” but didnt seem to dance as much as their hard hitting tunes called for; the sign of a crowd of new fans who probably didn’t make it to their set back in March during CMW.
Sweet and fierce lead vocalist Lauren Mayberry talked a bit between new songs from their upcoming debut album, thanking the crowd for packing out the venue on a rainy Wednesday night. Their live energy is just as intoxicating as their music, and we really can’t wait to hear that full length debut in the next few months. We’re super bummed we missed most of opener Still Corner’s set, but we’re planning to catch them on Friday at another NXNE showcase, so we’re okay with it.
Take a look at some photos from their live set and stay tuned for our interview with the band in the coming weeks.
