Scottish synth wizards CHVRCHES are so magic they somehow managed to turn Justin Bieber's "What Do You Mean?" into an even bigger banger than it already was. Now, they've shared a video for the remix of their song "Bury It" featuring Paramore’s Hayley Williams, after debuting the single in a killer performance at Bonnaroo festival last month. Animated by Mighty Nice and created by Jamie McKelvie – illustrator for The Wicked + The Divine (whose plot centres on pop stars with supernatural powers), Phonogram, Young Avengers, and every other good comic book series currently going – the video sees Lauren Mayberry team up with superhero pal Hayley to fly around an island city and, uh, magically lob some toasters around.
In a press release, McKelvie states: “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.”
