HURTS REVEALS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEXT SINGLE “CHAPERONE” CO-WRITTEN BY DAVID SNEDDON
British synth duo Hurts revealed their newest music video for their next single, “Chaperone,” co-written by Reservoir/Reverb Music writer David Sneddon, today via NME. “Chaperone” is the third single co-written by Sneddon, off the pair’s newest album Desire, which dropped last month.
The video centers on the performance from the artists themselves, as the minimal visuals ac only as an accent to the song. The group brings the red and black of Desire’s artwork cover into the video, using the a deep crimson backdrop and the pair are dressing in black, as rose petals trickle down around their silhouettes.
When discussing the band’s newly evolved sound, Frontman Theo Hutchcraft told NME, “It is a risk. That’s what we enjoy about it…part of the lightness of it comes from looking back at how the world has been a very dark place over the last couple of years…Going into the studio was an escape. The lightness of the songs is an antidote to the darkness that everyone has been confronted by.”
“Chaperone,” is one of eight tracks that Sneddon is credited to, and the third to receive the music video treatment, including their first single “Beautiful Ones,” which has over 3.5 million views, and “Ready To Go,” that has already racked up nearly 2.5 million views. David Sneddon’s other recent works include co-writing Scottish breakout star Lewis Capaldi’s “Lost on You” and U.K. rock group the Courteeners’ “Modern Love.”
