The latest musician of note to stop by Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist podcast is Chvrches singer Lauren Mayberry. I haven’t been able to listen to the episode yet other than catching some banter about Disney World at the beginning, but here’s a summary:
Lauren Mayberry, singer of Chvrches, takes a detour on their tour to talk to Chris! She talks about being from Scotland, transitioning from playing alt-rock to dance music, and meeting musical idols. They also talk about the importance of making music that they like instead of trying to please everyone else, and include a live song from their show in L.A.!
The podcast is 87 minutes long, and more than 80 of those are devoted to the interview, so there’s bound to be something fascinating in there. It ends with a live performance of “The Mother We Share,” a song that essentially never gets old. Stream or download the full episode here.
