From the luscious mind of the truly sublime comes an eternal waltz of the magnificent kind.
In the glorious new KITTEN video for “Church,” ingenue Chloe Chaidez sweeps us off our feet to a vivid world of self-discovery and spiritual enlightenment.
Lovingly shot beneath a fiery midday sun baking the Southern California desert, religious imagery anchors a journey of discovery, infusing color into the innate human desire for universal love and acceptance.
Lyrically, the song’s surface eschews a well-worn tale of human attraction and the complication of interpersonal emotion but its true north delves deeper into the spiritual realm.
As Chaidez urgently emotes, “salvation is here in my arms,” it can be interpreted as her own cross to bear to her younger self (portrayed by her 6-year old cousin Jaylene) but also as encouraging guidance to anyone’s spiritual journey, freeing themselves from emotional baggage to open a path to deeper love and a more fulfilling human experience.
A stunning marriage of music and motion, “Church” is masterful cinéma vérité. The pursuit of higher truth has never looked or sounded so good.
“Church” appears on the EP, Heaven or Somewhere In Between, available digitally via Scary Kids Records or on CD at shows along the band’s current U.S. tour (dates below) or at the KITTEN web site (you can order an autographed copy).
