Read CHVRCHES singer Lauren Mayberry's cool blog on why Depeche Mode are amazing

CHVRCHES singer Lauren Mayberry has blogged about how amazing Depeche Mode are. You should have a read of it

"Depeche Mode live is a pretty breathtaking thing. The set list is EPIC so you are in no danger of feeling short-changed. New material is there in abundance but blends well with old classics."

She continued to talk about what a great frontman and inspiration Dave Gahan is. "As a performer, he is a marvel, owning the stage of a multi-thousand-seater stadium as if it is a sweaty club, a talent one is surely born with but enhanced through the years and years of touring and dedication. "

"From what I can tell, this success is down to one simple thing: great songwriting. In today's musical climate of disposable pop with little to say versus obscure electro where all hints of a topline are buried beneath layers of effects and fear of seeming mainstream, Depeche Mode still stand alone, unafraid to foreground melody and imbue music with emotion in a way few other songwriters can, and that is an incredibly powerful thing to see.
