Chvrches’ music style is usually tagged as electronic or synthpop. Neon Gold described their sound as “a godless hurricane of kinetic pop energy”. Kitty Empire of the Observer wrote they “make accessible electro-pop that’s only just short of truly brilliant”.
Chvrches are influenced by acts such as Prince, Tubeway Army, Robyn, Laurie Anderson, Depeche Mode, Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins, Cyndi Lauper, Whitney Houston and Elliott Smith and compose their music in Propellerhead Reason. The band writes, records, mixes, and masters their songs in a basement studio in Glasgow.
