We admittedly haven’t featured Scottish trio Chvrches on the site much over their five year history, but it’s time for Lauren, Iain and Martin to have their time in the auspOp sunshine with the video for their latest single ‘Clearest Blue’.
Lifted from their sophomore album ‘Every Open Eye’, released back in September, the track is a bouncy electro number primed for commercial radio play with a clip that starts off brimming with mystery; a man in the middle of the road, looking like he’s just been hit by a car, receiving a note on the wind. A few flashes of memory and we’re into the main body.
As Lauren, wearing armour, watches a storm roll in from beneath a tree, we see images of the aforementioned man staggering along the darkened street. Watch to find out precisely what did happen to him.
