David Knight - 16th May 2018

With Years & Years' concept-led second album Palo Santo on the way, the second video by Fred Rowson is the next episode in the story of Y&Y's Olly Alexander as a captive human performer in a world dominated by androids.

After his unveiling as a prize exhibit in Sanctify, Olly becomes the star of an elaborate cabaret, where humans must perform continuously for their android masters, in If You're Over Me. As the song progresses the routines become increasingly spectactular - and we also glimpse life backstage.

Clearly there's some kind of history between Olly and one of his fellow dancers...
