Sophie Muller directs the glistening performance video for Kylie’s A Second to Midnight, featuring Years & Years - aka Olly Alexander - and some 'wait, what...?' moments of role-reversal between the two performers.Shot in London's historic Collins' Music Hall, the concept sees the leopard print-clad duo dance around under a spotlight, briefly switching roles - with the clever application of 'hair swap' technology - while the accompanying dancers also 'become' Kylie and Ollie with their use of face masks. Muller collaborated with Theo Adams, in the role of performance director on the song-and-dance routine executed by the pop stars. The results exudes that sense of pure joy that is the hallmark of any great Kylie video, and a complete delight to watch.PRETTYBIRD UK co-founder Juliette Larthe says: "The insanely wonderful pairing of the maverick alchemists of vision and movement, the geniuses of vespertine delights - Sophie Muller and Theo Adams - repeatedly inculcate the aureate of their crafts individually, and now together for the first time with Kylie and Olly. The result is epic-ness of the most MAJORNESS and we utterly love it."
