Chvrches (previously known as Churches) are a Scottish alternative pop band from Glasgow, formed in 2011. The group consists of Lauren Mayberry (vocals), Iain Cook (synthesizers) and Martin Doherty (synthesizers).

Previously, Mayberry was vocalist for Blue Sky Archives, Cook was a member of Aereogramme / The Unwinding Hours and Doherty was a live member of The Twilight Sad.

The band started in October 2011 as a studio project between the long time friends Iain Cook and Martin Doherty. Cook already knew Lauren Mayberry from working with her other band and suggested her as a potential vocalist for the project.

Churches were influenced by acts such as Lil Wayne, Tubeway Army and Laurie Anderson. The band write, record, mix and master everything in a basement studio in Glasgow.
