To celebrate the release of their brand new album "The Bones Of What You Believe", CHVRCHES hosted a session for Boiler Room TV on Friday night. Located at the Hoxton Arches (Arch 402 Gallery to be precise) it was a wonderfully intimate space, laid out with the performance area in the middle and a buzzing crowd of 100 or so surrounding the action. After a wicked set by CID RIM (who of course did that "Recover" remix) it was the turn of CHVRCHES to take the stage – which I was practically standing on – and they smashed it, I had an insanely good time despite attending on my own. (None of my friends were interested or keen enough to chance queue with me for a wristband...) But it was incredible, certainly to experience it so physically close was a rare and thrilling moment, quite literally feeling and sharing their infectious energy.

Their debut album is an amazing record, as I attempted to explain the other day here. It actually entered the Top 10 in the official UK charts, for which a huge congratulation is due to such a hardworking, down-to-earth, and considerate band. Massive achievement and so thoroughly deserved.
