Chvrches’ lead singer Lauren Mayberry has released her debut solo single, “Are You Awake?” Mayberry announced her intention to release songs outside of “Chvrches” last month. In a post on Instagram she wrote:
“For a long time, I couldn’t imagine ever doing anything outside of Chvrches. Since I was 15 years old, I have always, only, ever been in a band. I always wanted so badly to belong somewhere — to be one of the boys, and to fit in. But as I sail/stumble through this era of my life (your 20s really do go by in a flash, kids), it has started to feel like there are things I want to write and say and do that need to be done on my own.”
Lauren Mayberry’s “Are You Awake?” is new this week on RadiJohan.
