Years & Years 'Real' by Robert Francis Müller

Jimmy Brown - 14th Feb 2014

British actor Ben Whishaw (Q in Skyfall) turns in a brilliant loose-limbed performance in Robert Francis Müller's excellent promo for Years & Years' dance throbber Real.

Set in a neon-soaked club and bolstered by a large ensemble, the band's frontman Olly Alexander explains:

 “I did a play with Ben 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.” 

Robert Francis Müller

"I was contacted by Olly the lead singer of Years & Years to direct their latest video. The band and I worked together in coming up with this slightly dark and surreal concept. What the guys wanted was something that involved dancing, but had a narrative and this is what we came up with!

"It was a great team effort and everyone went above and beyond what I expected. Being shot on a shoe string budget I have a lot of favours to repay now, but it was well worth it!"
