Watch: Chvrches & Hayley Williams Get Animated For “Bury It”

Rising above the city streets

Chvrches are showing off the their telekinetic abilities in a video for their recent single “Bury It”, featuring Paramore singer Hayley Williams.

The video was created by one of the band’s longtime collaborators, artist and writer Jamie McKelvie, in a joint-effort with animation specialist Mighty Nice. In a press statement announcing the video, Chvrches’ Iain Cook explained the root of the concept:

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.

“Music has always had a big influence on my work, and making a music video seemed like a natural progression of that.” McKelvie added. “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 remix of “Bury It” will be featured on the upcoming extended edition of Chvrches’ second album, Every Open Eye which drops July 29th.
