Years & Years 'Worship' by Matt Lambert
Singer Olly Alexander, director Matt Lambert and choreographer Ryan Heffington get together to make a bold statement for Alexander's band Years & Years, channelling elements of Queer cinema into the mainstream for the video for Worship.
Olly Alexander says: "I couldn't have been more excited and grateful to work with two artists I massively respect, Matt Lambert and Ryan Heffington. Their super-charged magical queer creative energy was a real privilege to be a part of. This video is a collaboration between us and I am very proud of it.
"I want to stare down fear and intolerance with the queer eyes in my queer face. I want to try to not be afraid. I know I'll make mistakes, but I want to keep going. I've seen the incredible amount of support and love from our fans and I’ve learnt a lot from them. I can only hope that the dialogue continues and we trust each other enough to carry on. To keep making people sit up and think, to start the conversations that tackle identity, gender, gayness, queerness and the inter-sections between them all. I know that I’m not going to be quiet about it."
