The Talkhouse Music Podcast

Lauren Mayberry (Chvrches) with Haim

Chvrches was playing a great set at the 2015 Pitchfork Music Festival when we noticed all three members of Haim rocking out by the side of the stage.  Clearly, they're big Chvrches fans.  When our producer bumped into Este Haim in the VIP area, he asked if she'd like to do a podcast with Lauren Mayberry, Chvrches' lead singer (and a regular Talkhouse writer).  She absolutely did.  Then Danielle Haim wanted in.  And then Alana Haim wanted in too.  So we wound up with Lauren chatting with all three Haim sisters in a noisy trailer right there on the festival grounds.

Topics covered: how to deal with getting hit in the face with a beachball in front of thousands of people, mesmerizing Afros, panic-vomiting, forgetting lyrics on stage and, most importantly, how to pronounce GIF.
