Watch CHVRCHES Perform Synthpop Jam 'Recover' in Exclusive Studio Session

Guitar Center

Catch an early clip from the Aug. 10 episode of Guitar Center Sessions

Billboard presents an early peek at CHVRCHES’ brand new Guitar Center Sessions -- a performance of the make-up-or-breakup anthem “Recover.”

The Scottish synthpop band has certainly made its rounds on the festival and club circuits, but this clip from the forthcoming Aug. 10 episode gives a fresh studio look at one of CHVRCHES’ best tracks. The episode, featuring more CHVRCHES songs, airs at 8 p.m. (ET) on DIRECTV's Audience Network.

"This season we've not only had the opportunity to feature iconic bands like Soundgarden and Alice in Chains, but we've also introduced a bunch of breaking bands like CHVRCHES, Phantogram and Cage the Elephant,” says host Nic Harcourt. “That's what makes this show so great -- we're able to feature a huge range of musical talent and put quality music programming back on TV.”

In other words, CHVRCHES are so good, they don’t need guitars to perform for Guitar Center!

And while you’re at it, check out CHVRCHES’ two-song live session, interview, and photo shoot at Billboard’s studio from Oct. 2013, shortly after the release of their debut LP The Bones of What You Believe. Recently, the trio also chatted at Bonnaroo and got a little snarky after an unfriendly remark from Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda.
