Scotland's overhyped CHVRCHES work a vein of synth-pop between Purity Ring's shoegazer trap rhythms and, frankly, sugary Disney pop princesses. Super-girly singer Lauren Mayberry beats up her heart over boys while keyboard claps and drum machine thumps boom away. For all it's pretentions, the music is not that far removed from Debbie Gibson. The trio drops its debut LP, The Bones of What You Believe, in late September.
