Chvrches release video for Leave A Trace from Every Open Eye

I applaud Chvrches' singer Lauren Mayberry for her challenges against sexism. The kind of inappropriate comments slung her way are absolutely unacceptable and attitudes need to change. What she's speaking up for is perfectly correct and none of us should stop pushing for tolerance, acceptance and everything that is right and just. However, I am reminded of that line from Apocalypse Now where Williard mentions the futility of charging Kurtz with murder in Vietnam in the midst of a war. "Shit... charging a man with murder in this place was like handing out speeding tickets in the Indy 500."

Having addressed the current events surrounding the new video by Chvrches and the adolescent attitudes that flourish on-line, I can move to introduce the beautiful official video for the brilliant song "Leave A Trace" from Chvrches' forthcoming Every Open Eye album which comes out September 25.
