The video was created by one of the band’s longtime collaborators, artist and writer Jamie McKelvie, alongside animation specialist Mighty Nice.
Chvrches’ Iain Cook said of the video: “Ever since Jamie McKelvie began working with us on Chvrches poster designs, we have been discussing ways in which we could further our creative relationship. His work on comics such as Phonogram, Young Avengers and most recently The Wicked + The Divine have cemented his reputation as one of the most unique and exciting artists.”
Meanwhile, McKelvie added: “Music has always had a big influence on my work, and making a music video seemed like a natural progression of that. Getting the opportunity to work on this video with such great collaborators -Chvrches, Hayley Williams, and Mighty Nice – meant the reality turned out even better than I’d imagined.”
The new version of ‘Bury It’ featuring Hayley Williams is taken from the forthcoming ‘Extended Edition’ of Chvrches second album ‘Every Open Eye’, which drops on July 29. The reissue also features two new songs and remixes of tracks from the original album, which came out in 2015.
Chvrches are due to play Latitude Festival this Saturday (July 16) and will then play further UK festival sets at Reading and Leeds in August.
