CHVRCHES; Barrowland, Glasgow 08.0.

Byline: JULES BOYLE

They've came a long way in a relatively short space of time but it'd be hard to argue that Chvrches don't deserve their success.

Turning their first Barrowland show into a triumphant homecoming gig, the Glasgow trio looked blown away both by the reception they were receiving and the sheer thrill of being on a stage they had spent their teenage years looking up at.

With their back catalogue limited to the one album, the show was understandably short, coming in at just under an hour, but nobody left feeling short–changed.

Fan–favourites including Recover and The Mother We Share already sounded like classics, while tracks such as We Sink, Tether and Lies all beautifully blended juddering techno, glacial electro and powerfully emotive melodies, all topped by singer Lauren Mayberry's jaw–dropping vocals.

The only question is, where do they go from here?
