Roller skating in real life is difficult, but it always looks easy in music videos. Real roller-skate parties often end with physical injuries sustained from falling over while trying to pull off a backward skate or emotional bruises from traumatic “couples skate” rejections. Luckily, the new video for Chvrches’ “Now Is Not The Time” casts roller skating in a more positive, enjoyable light. Apparently as long as there’s a shimmering dance-pop band playing in the background, roller skating can be a fun, pleasant activity. Who knew?
The swirling, yearning track comes from the group’s Recover EP. Check it out below.
