Years & Years | Real (Official Video)

As Years & Years ready the release of their new single Real, due out Feb 17th via Kitsuné, the London group return with an official video to coincide. Have a watch above as actors Ben Wishaw (Skyfall, I’m Not There) and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Utopia, Misfits) make dancing cameos. Frontman Olly Alexander goes on to describe the videos conception:

"The song is about me feeling judged by someone so I thought it might be a cool idea to flip that feeling and be the one judging others. I did a play with Ben Whishaw and we used to do warm-ups every night on the stage and he's such a brilliant dancer, like an electric eel or something. The track has a big dance element and I wanted to see people dancing the way that Ben does, in a way that is almost out of control, like they've been hypnotised or something. We wanted to create a kind of eerie, Twin Peaks, surrealist environment."

Co-produced by Lxury the new single will feature b-side Eyes Shut and comes backed with remixes from Le Marquis, Tobtok and J.A.C.K. You can Pre-Order it here. The band will also play a headline show on 5th March at Hackney's Oslo. Tickets available here.
