Join your fellow GRAMMY U® New Orleans members for a sound check and conversation with CHVRCHES!

Since emerging in 2013 with the glistening brightness of their breakthrough single, “Recover,” CHVRCHES have always projected an insularity, a subtle but unmistakable wariness about leaning into their obvious Hit Song of the Summer-writing potential. At their core, CHVRCHES are true blue Glaswegian punks. To this end, the band members - Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty - have always kept their creative process close and tight. They’ve been diligent to the max about managing the way their band is portrayed. And, of course, they have historically produced every piece of music themselves, including their 2013 debut, The Bones of What You Believe, and 2015 follow-up, Every Open Eye. For their upcoming third release, Love Is Dead, CHVRCHES strived to balance that “truth exists somewhere between the dark and the light.”

GRAMMY U SF invites you to attend a SoundChecks session with indie electronic/synthpop duo St. Lucia. Their third album, Hyperion, is a record that's searching, inquisitive and culturally current while also sonically brimming with positivity, dance and funk. Imagine a politicized Daft Punk, or a theological Phoenix, and you're halfway there. It's an avant-garde pop album that makes you think and serves to balance darkness with positivity and social change. Learn more about St. Lucia at www.stlucianewyork.com. Event open to GRAMMY U Members Only. Guests not permitted. RSVP Required.
