Scottish synthpop trio, CHVRCHES have just launched their official music video for ‘Leave A Trace.’ The track, which was released in mid-July, is one of the first new songs from CHVRCHES’ upcoming album, Every Open Eye, the long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s, The Bones of What You Believe.
The video sees vocalist Lauren Mayberry walk on water while appearing silhouetted against a vast, smoky backdrop and occasional flashes of immense colour. ‘Leave A Trace,’ which is somewhat darker and more lyrically confronting than some of CHVRCHES’ previous tracks, offers an expertly crafted video with beautiful cinematography. Mayberry, who describes the track as “a middle finger mic drop about not being told what to do,” sounds bigger and bolder than ever before, as CHVRHCES continue to push their signature twisted synthpop style further and further.
‘Every Open Eye’ will be available from September 25.
