And if I recover
will you be my comfort?
Or it can be over
or we can just leave it here.

Mid-way through their 60-minute performance at The Pageant last night, CHVRCHES’ Lauren Mayberry remarked how she was having fun looking at the flashing screens across the room from her. “I can tell you that Ms. Lauren Hill is playing here on June 18th,” she said. “Please direct your questions to the venue staff.”

This brief announcement to the audience showed Mayberry’s playful side, which was refreshing after the opening blow-by-blow of the show’s first four songs: “We Sink,” “Lies,” “Lungs,” and “Gun.” Heavyweight stuff for sure, but it wasn’t until “Recover” that the ultimate punch was thrown. What a song. What a show.
