Years & Years just released the music video for their current single “King” and it’s pretty sick. Band members Olly Alexander, Emre Turkmen, and Mikey Goldsworthy can be seen in a house devoid of any real furniture, playing their instruments. “King” is about control and power dynamics so it’s fitting that dancers seem to control the band’s movements like puppeteers. Alexander even leaves the house for a stroll, completely controlled by the flock of dancers following him.
I was a king under your control / I wanna feel like you’ve let me go
Check out the video now.
We got the chance to see Years & Years play their first US show at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade this week. Check out the review and pictures here.
