Cat Velez - 29th Sept 2015

For Eyes Shut, Chino Moya directs Years & Years’ leading man Olly Alexander walking obliviously through a world that is coming to an end. “There is something very hypnotizing about him and that is why I decided to do everything in one-take,” Chino Moya explained. “I wanted to give this intimate song a sense of scale.”

The visual treatment retains trademarks of Chino’s earlier work including surrealist and futuristic elements, and of course, a cinematic and detailed approach to set design and styling. Filmed on a housing estate in the outskirts of Sofia, Bulgaria, the crumbling Eastern European architecture became the perfect setting to stage the idea of an epic imploding civilisation.
