IN PHOTOS: Chvrches plays for Manila crowd
MANILA, Philippines – Scottish group Chvrches played to a crowd of thrilled fans at the Samsung Hall at SM Aura, November 26.
Known for lead singer Lauren Mayberry’s pure, clear voice notable over the band’s signature synth sound, the group did not disappoint with their Manila set.
Quality sound really allowed Lauren’s vocals to shine – if you closed your eyes you would think you were listening to a record – perfect on all accounts, not an easy task for any seasoned performer, never mind for a relatively young group.

On stage Lauren was on vocals at the mic stand center, flanked by Iain Cook and Martin Doherty with the keyboard and synthesizer equipment appearing to look more like a sic-fi control panel. During the short breaks she wasn’t singing, she would dance with abandon, whipping the mic cord all over the place. The band got into it as much as the crowd.
The set list was composed of most of the selections from their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, released in 2013. The crowd went wild when the played their biggest hit, “The Mother We Share.”
If you ever get another chance to see them live, Lauren's impeccable vocal performance will be worth the trip. – Rappler.com
