Video: Years & Years | Desire

It's crazy how much an effect a budget has when producing a video. I'll always remember a rather fresh faced looking Years & Years when they first appeared on my radar with a DIY clip for single 'I Wish I knew'. Featuring Olly's seductive dance moves and a couple of confetti cannons not much else was present. Now under a label and with a much bigger fan base it seems only right to up the ante as they join forces with director Sing J Lee for their official video to latest track Desire. Take a watch above as the dark and mystifying film sheds some light on the often voyeuristic tendencies we have as human beings. 
"After getting hooked on the track, the boys sent a note through about the meaning of the song, a cyclical conflict of being a slave to desire and the blurring between the lines of lust and love. This in mind, I wanted to create something sensual and surreal, and it felt right that we should visit a strange world set within an apartment block and fleetingly peer into the lives of characters as they voyeuristically and hungrily fantasise over watching each other, with Olly playing the enigmatic raconteur." - Sing J Lee
You can catch the band out on the road this Autumn and again with a full headline stint in the New Year. 'Desire' will be released on November 23rd through Polydor Records
