The video is set in Edie’s home, recreating the moment she and Megan first wrote the track. As such, there’s a sense of intimacy to it all, like peeling back the curtain and seeing music in its rawest form, as a way to share ideas and feelings. The feeling that comes through loud and clear in The Chain is one of nostalgia tinged with grief, aimed at someone who is going through some struggles. Throughout Edie and Megan’s vocals work spectacularly together.

With 22 years’ experience in the industry, it’s no surprise that Edie can create music this beautiful and compelling. You can check out the video for The Chain below.
