Watch CHVRCHES Play ‘The Tonight Show,’ Explain ‘Recover’ Origins

Almost one year after making their US television debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, CHVRCHES stopped by The Tonight Show May 1 to perform one of their more popular singles, Recover.

The Scottish trio has blown up in the last year, with critics and fans alike celebrating the band’s outstanding debut album The Bones of What You Believe. According to Fallon, CHVRCHES’ massive success can be attributed to their first appearance on his show back in 2013.

CHVRCHES also offered up a Tonight Show web exclusive, featuring the backstory of how the band wrote the song. According to frontwoman Lauren Mayberry, Recover was one of the first tracks the band wrote together and would later serve as a blueprint for how CHVRCHES would write and record together.

Check out the performance and the full story of the track below.
