Which brings us to Chvrches, the scene-defining avatar for indie rocks 2010s dalliance with synth-pop. They made their entry into the mass consciousness in 2013, embodying a cultural shift from rock groups toying with synth-pop aesthetics (Passion Pit, Phoenix, MGMT) toward outright synth-pop acts with a rock bands sensibility and marketing plan. These kinds of projects seemed impossible to escape half a decade ago, but in hindsight, Chvrches stand out. When asked to name a synth-y indie band, they are likely the first one that comes to mind. Even Purity Ring, their closest competition as standard-bearers for the indie-goes-synth-pop sound the White Stripes to their Strokes, if you will sounded more than a little like Chvrches on their most recent LP, 2015s Another Eternity. They werent the only ones.Its easy to see why other groups would be attracted to Chvrches approach. On 2013s The Bones Of What You Believe, the Glasgow trio mustered all the anthem-writing skill theyd accumulated in their years with various depressive Scottish guitar bands and turned it loose on keyboards and drum machines. The result was soaring, sparkling pop music, tinted by melancholy but bright and approachable in execution.
