There is something undeniably blessed about Chvrches’ sound. Bridging both the dark and light of synthpop, the Scottish trio can craft truly superb gems of pop that are as complex as they are danceable. Just look at their cover of Whitney Houston’s classic “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay”: They subdued the chorus and brought out the song’s sadder elements without compromising what made the original such a banger. Chvrches are still riding the wave of their successful 2013, a year that saw them release three EPs and their full-length debut, The Bones of What You Believe. To solidify that, the band tackles a three-show, sold-out run at Terminal 5, where their melodies will worm their way into your head so swiftly it’ll be sinful.
