Phoebe Bridgers shares "Savior Complex" video behind the scenes footage, directed By Phoebe Waller-Bridge & starring Paul Mescal.
Last week, Phoebe Bridgers unveiled yet another surprise: a video for her song “Savior Complex” directed by award winning actor, writer and producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge and starring Emmy-nominated Irish actor Paul Mescal and youthful newcomer Charlotte.
The video, initially only viewable on Facebook where it racked up over 11 million views in one week, is now embeddable for all. Today, Phoebe has released some behind the scenes footage from the summer shoot in the British Isles.
Bridgers is nominated for 4 GRAMMYs in the categories of ‘Best New Artist’, ‘Best Alternative Album’ for Punisher and ‘Best Rock Song’ and ‘Best Rock Performance’ for “Kyoto”.
Last week she performed “Savior Complex” for The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon alongside a ghostly piano player at LA’s famed Magic Castle.

Written and recorded between the summer of 2018 and the autumn of 2019, Punisher gave Bridgers her first Billboard #1 on the Emerging Artist Chart and her first UK top 10 album. It has also cemented her as one of the most irresistibly clever and tenderly prolific songwriters of our era.
A singular talent, Bridgers is the rare artist with enough humour to deconstruct the tired heuristics of a meteoric rise.
Punisher is out now via Dead Oceans.
