Published Jan 16, 2015In 2013, Glaswegian synth-pop outfit Chvrches made a splash with their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe. Having promoted it extensively and then contributing a song to the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, they've now started recording their sophomore album.
The band announced the news with a tweet saying that today (January 16) was their first day in the studio. They also posted a few pictures and, while it's obviously too soon to speculate what the album will sound like, the array of synths suggests that they may well be sticking with their electronic palette.
There has been a small flurry of artists starting work on new albums in the last day or two. Today is the first day of PJ Harvey's art installation in which she is recording an album in a glass room, and Chris Cornell just announced that he has entered the studio to make a solo album.
