A befittingly wonderful visual for an equally wonderful song

Glaswegian pop maestros CHVRCHES have just unleashed the music video for their Every Open Eye standout “Clearest Blue” upon the unworthy masses. The Warren Fu-directed short opens with the camera trained on man, crumpled up on the ground, as he stands up and looks at a note that’s blown his way by the wind. Quickly the scene flashes to a forest, as Iain Cook and Martin Doherty walk solemnly towards an armored-up Lauren Mayberry, and things cut and flash and bang and whizz back and forth and beyond for the rest of the tune. All in all, it’s a baroque and wonderfully fitting visual accompaniment to what truly was one of the best songs of 2015 (and beyond).
