On Monday, CHVRCHES shared “Good Girls” as the third single from their upcoming album, Screen Violence, due out on August 27th. It followed their singles “He Said She Said” and “How Not To Drown” featuring Robert Smith of The Cure. Today, “Good Girls” gets a new music video to add to its magnetism.
“Good Girls” opens with a twinkling soundscape before a dance-floor-ready beat comes in. Frontwoman Lauren Mayberry sings about the bore of killing your idols, even if they may deserve it. The song builds up to an excellent pre-chorus, then the chorus hits with everything good girls are… and Lauren is not. It has a hint of the gaslighting themes we heard in “He Said She Said” earlier this year. This is a powerful song that shows off what we love most about CHVRCHES.
Like the videos for the previous two singles, the clip for “Good Girls” draws from photography dark rooms and the large spinning structure. It has the same vintage collage feeling, with staticky TV screens and a collection of images competing for attention. Lauren is front and center for most of the video, and while her bandmates play their instruments on fuzzy screens, she gets a machine pressed to her face, as if she’s in for an eye exam. By the end, though, the area around her eyes has been painted blue to match her dress.
