Chvrches have released a new video for their song, “Out Of My Head,” featuring Japanese electro-pop group Wednesday Campanella, Pitchfork reports. The anime video was created by Junichi Yamamoto, who has previously worked on Pop Team Epic, Batman and Ninja, along with art director Yoshiki Imazu, who has worked on Ringing City and Fluffiction.
Kom_I of Wednesday Campanella says of working on the recent single, “I was asked by Lauren that I should express my strong emotion and vent my anger to the song. I realized that I personally have little chance to feel the tears welling up with strong anger…However, even though I have obtained freedom, the world is not yet changed and we can never have completely assured lives in this era. So I wrote this for giving a pep talk to myself who is being left half done. Kawasaki meets Glasgow, Kiyoshiro Imawano meets David Bowie, and Edamame meets Fish & Chips.”
Chvrches formed in 2011 in Glasgow, Scotland. The synth-pop group, consisting of Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook and Martin Doherty, have previously released three albums including The Bones of What You Believe (2013), Every Open Eye (2015) and Love is Dead, which dropped last May.
Vocalist Lauren Mayberry says of collaborating with Wednesday Campanella, “Japan has always been a really special place for Chvrches. And we were really excited to put together something special for our fans there. Kom_I has such a strong, individual voice in her music and how she conducts herself as a person—something that I really admire—and we were so lucky that she wanted to collaborate on this track.”
Chvrches are currently on tour in support of their new album with upcoming stops in Denver, Long Beach, San Diego and Las Vegas. Check out a full list of tour dates below:
