You’ve probably heard this before. I’m a HUGE fan of the Glasgow indie synth-pop band CHVRCHES. Their debut album is sublime and they canpretty much do no wrong in my eyes, so don’t even try to convince me otherwise.
Anyway, I recently caught the first-leg of their North American tour, starting at the historic Fox Theater in Oakland. That’s how much I love this band; I risked my life to see them live in Oakland. While everyone around me held their smartphones in front of them for the duration of the concert, I waited patiently until the right moment.
This moment in particular is when the slow, melancholy song “Tether” suddenly explodes in a fury of synthesizers and epic awesomeness. The live version did not disappoint. Face melting awesome.
