The video was directed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Phoebe Bridgers has teamed up with two of the biggest names in television – Irish actor Paul Mescal of Normal People, and UK actor/writer/producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge of Fleabag – for the music video for 'Saviour Complex'. The song features on Bridgers' acclaimed album Punisher, released earlier this year.
The American singer-songwriter will also perform a special rendition of 'Saviour Complex', filmed at LA's Magic Castle, on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tomorrow night.
Last week saw Bridgers pick up four Grammy nominations, in the categories of Best New Artist, Best Alternative Album, Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance.
In an interview with Hot Press earlier this year, Bridgers spoke about her appreciation of the hit TV adaptation of Normal People, starring Paul Mescal.
“I read Normal People and Conversations With Friends last year, and they destroyed me,” she said. “So I was not looking forward to watching the series, even though I knew I had to, because it was so sad. But they did a beautiful job, so I’m really glad I forced myself to do it.
“They did what gay French films have been doing for years, but for straight people – as far as being sex positive, and the cinematography. That book is like Catcher In The Rye, if both people were Holden Caulfield. They’re constantly miscommunicating. It’s so painful, but it’s beautiful.”
