2013 was a great year, it seems, for new artists. While there were a lot of great newcomers last year, Chvrches easily became one of my favorites. Their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, contained a number of gems, including "The Mother We Share," "Lies," and "Recover." My favorite track from the album, however, is easily "Guns." Lauren Mayberry's soft voice belies a vitriolic desire for revenge against a former lover (a feeling I can definitely share).
The Bones of What You Believe was released on September 24.
