A month following the release of the Chvrches and Hayley Williams collaborative remix of “Bury It” from the latter’s 2015 album Every Open Eye, the band has shared the accompanying animated music video.
Released July 11, the video was created by Jamie McKelvie – a frequent collaborator of the band – and animated by Mighty Nice. The video adopts a comic book theme, depicting the artists as superheroes, soaring across the city and conjuring an array of objects with their telekinetic powers.
On Jamie McKelvie, Chvrches’ Ian Cook stated:
“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.”
