Album: Communion (2015)
  • The Fred Rowson-directed video sees frontman Olly Alexander being brought back from the dead at a bizarre, ritualistic ceremony. The Years & Years vocalist explained: "We wanted to revisit some earlier themes and imagery from our videos. We expanded on the eerie and hypnotic feel of the song and played with the drama of ritualistic practice, audience and voyeurism. Our director, Fred Rowson, was really good at seeing into our minds and bringing our ideas to life."
