Lauren Mayberry is warming up to be one of our favorite voices since we heard her for the first time in CHVRCHES, a Scottish electro-pop band that has amassed more than a million listens on their Soundcloud account before even releasing an album. Since the band only has four songs out and being patient for more music is not an option, we stumbled upon Blue Sky Archives, a band Lauren was in before she left to join CHVRCHES.
It’s nostalgic to late 90’s indie rock, pretty in a sweeping way, and it made me add “go to a DIY show in Glasgow” on my bucket list if this band is any indication of the scene they have there.
Fun fact: Lauren Mayberry has a law degree, a Masters in Journalism, and was a drummer before she turned to singing. So basically she is a smart, talented babe and we can’t wait to see and hear more from her.
Check out a video from Blue Sky Archives and listen to their EP Triple A Side below.
