Chvrches' "Never Ending Circles"
Hear the 'Every Open Eye' opener.

During Chvrches‘ early live shows, singer Lauren Mayberry always seemed a little reluctant to be in the spotlight or to take the focus. But the trio’s new video for “Leave A Trace” places her front and center, which makes sense since the lead single of Every Open Eye (out September 25) is one of her more personal songs.

The visual was directed by Warren & Nick, who have also worked with Björk. It primarily shows Mayberry performing in a damp, foggy expanse of nothingness, sort of giving off a “Take Care” vibe. And it certainly suggests that, for this second album, Mayberry is comfortable stepping out as the band’s leader.

Watch it up top.
