Jonjo Lowe's video takes us into the turmoil of three relationships, through dance and cosmic imagery, for British alt-pop group PREP's bubbly Years Don't Lie.

Lowe places his characters in a highly stylised world created by 3D animation and makes it work. In this case, a giant moon appears to be about to obliterate the home planet of the three couples, who appear oblivious to oncoming danger. Their passionate feelings for each other are expressed through dance - and in a final twist, they ultimately indulge in some lover-swapping to achieve greater fulfillment.

After his similarly stylised video for indie band The Big Moon, Lowe's vision of love at the end of the world, matching live action and animation via greenscreen, is a step forward towards a strong signature look.
