Goths Go to the Waterpark in CHVRCHES’ ‘Empty Threat’ Video

CHVRCHES‘ new music video for “Empty Threat,” the latest single off of their sophomore album Every Open Eye, follows a young Lauren Mayberry-lookalike and her goth friends on a jaunty outing to their local waterpark. While the visuals in the Austin Peters video — which was shot in Miami — are inherently somewhat comical and joyous, there’s as a subtle string of melancholy — the joy these kids have riding waterslides with one another seems to be a brief, halcyon respite for more uncertain times on the precipice of change.
