The best thing about a Chvrches show is Lauren Mayberry's voice. It is almost shocking to hear a pop artist sounding as angelic in person as she does on record. Otherwise she is a bit of an understated and frankly lethargic performer. I suppose this was alright as the Forum is more of a sit-down and listen type of venue.

Their aesthetic is pretty cohesive. It is basically computer music, so there are various arrays of LEDs draped over the equipment and the set. These are well done, but all the technology is rather a strange juxtaposition with Mayberry's organic purity.

Chvrches played the Forum in Kentish town on the 14th of March, 2014
