So, what happens when Stewart steps behind the camera? Well, the video features a lot of up-close shots of band member Lauren Mayberry’s hand and eyes, as well as different snapshots of Chvrches recording. And, of course, the entire video is scored to “Down Side of Me.”
Stewart previously said of the project, “I ended up with a pretty simple but definitive narrative arc that highlights the cause in a sweet but quiet and confronting way.”
To see what that means, watch the video below.
