Things are getting "Real" fast for Years & Years. In the midst of the European leg of their worldwide tour, the UK trio are gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated debut album Communion. Following a string of video releases including singles "King" and "Shine" comes their latest offering. Rocking the "Foundation" of life and death, the Fred Rowson-directed video finds Olly rising from the dead in the middle of his wake, leading the audience into immortality along with him as he is walking dead to the door.
Olly told Pitchfork "We wanted to revisit some earlier themes and imagery from our videos. We expanded on the eerie and hypnotic feel of the song and played with the drama of ritualistic practice, audience and voyeurism. Our director, Fred Rowson, was really good at seeing into our minds and bringing our ideas to life."
