Chvrches at Field Trip 2014

I've liked Chvrches since I first heard "The Mother We Share". Their earnest pop music hit my ear just the right way and I became an instant fan. I've wanted to see Chvrches for a long time. I didn't go to see them the last time they were in Toronto and I've regretted it ever since.

Everything was made right when I saw the line-up for Field Trip and when I actually got to see this trio hit the stage. It would have been perfect without the rain, but none of us were going to let that (literally) dampen our spirits. Lauren Mayberry even commented that we didn't look too soggy.

The sound was certainly heavy on the bass. My ribcage vibrated in sympathy with the chord changes, but I loved every minute. It really looked like they did too. Hopefully, next time we'll get to hear Mayberry do some Alanis Morissette.

Here are some tunes from their hit-filled setlist.

They opened with "We Sink"


"Gun" Definitely one of my favourites


And they saved "The Mother We Share" until the end. I closed my eyes and let the beauty roll over me. No matter how many times I hear this song, I never tire of it.

As I tweeted during the show, Chvrches début album The Bones Of What You Believe features a greatest hits album worth of amazing pop tunes. Love it. Overall, I had a great time grooving to their tunes. Awesome. Can't wait to do it again.
I took pics at Field Trip with my iPhone. Hopefully next year, I'll be in the photo pit with my better gear.
