CHVRCHES go Medieval in new video for “Clearest Blue” — watch

In continued support of the band's Every Open Eye


CHVRCHES are known for fusing synthpop elements old and new, familiar and alien. Their latest music video for Every Open Eye single “Clearest Blue” is no different.

Directed by Warren Fu, the clip sees Lauren Mayberry & co. channeling what appears to be the Medieval era — complete with heavy-duty body armor — while wandering about a smoky forest that could easily double as a strange futuristic planet of sorts. Whether it’s 2015 or 1300, the three-piece seem to fit right in with their surroundings.

Watch below.

The Glasgow outfit is scheduled to return to North America next month for a bunch of tour dates, including appearances at Buku Music + Art Project and Coachella Music Festival. Find the full itinerary here.
