And video, Director Luke Gilford
I like the video. It's arresting, with striking images, but rather confusing to follow. It seems to be about a man who wants a woman, but is beaten up by two other guys. Were some of these images, especially the ones showing intimacy, friendly or sexual, meant to be homoerotic or not?
This is why the remix works better. It's a bubbly, zooming, swooshing take on Hurricane by CHVRCHES. It’s fun, and brings out a playfulness that's not in the version used as the soundtrack for the video. That’s not to say the soundtrack version is a bad song. It’s just that the remix is infectious.
