Chvrches Share New Music Video For Single Good Girls

Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches have unveiled a video for their new single, Good Girls. 

The video is the final of an analogue-inspired trilogy— the clip continuing the '80s-inspired themes scattered across their previous releases; How Not To Drown featuring The Cure's Robert Smith and He Said She Said.

There is, however, more to the video than simply a nostalgic, grainy cassette tape feel and dreamy special effects. Frontwoman Lauren Mayberry said:

"Women have to constantly justify their right to exist and negotiate for their own space. We're told that Bad Things don't happen to Good Girls. That if you curate yourself to fit the ideal—keep yourself small and safe and acceptable—you will be alright, and it's just not fucking true."

With such a powerful message underlying the lyrics of the track, director Scott Kiernan felt that it was important to reflect this in the video. He explained:

“The video for He Said She Said dealt with doubt in making of one's own image while under the manipulation of another; while How Not to Drown sought an exit from a low, from feeling penned in by larger power structures, and refusing to succumb to them again. But Good Girls portrays a certain learned confidence in knowing who and what you are, despite what others might conform to themselves. It's having a clear vision, or something like a compound eye that can see at all angles.”

The single is taken from their fourth studio album, 'Screen Violence,' which is due for release August 27 via EMI Records, and which they'll support with tours across the UK and North America in 2022.
