CHVRCHES – “Empty Threat”

chvrches - empty threat goths

80’s inspired fashion and visual treatments continue to dominate video production in 2015.

These trends are clearly visible in the video for “Empty Threat” by Scottish synth-poppers CHVRCHES. Showing that goths just wanna have fun, “Empty Threat” follows a group of sallow-faced friends as they mope around a water park on a summer day.

Director Austin Peters (Haim “Forever“, Bastille “Flaws“) beautifully employs his signature washed-out video production style, making the contrast between 80’s water park and the pallid gothic crew even more pronounced.

Who says fishnet stockings and mesh shirts aren’t legit swimwear?!
