YEARS & YEARS Unveil Video for ‘If You’re Over Me’
The band will release their highly anticipated second album Palo Santo in July.
Following the first single Sanctify, the journey through the trio’s imaginary world of Palo Santo continues.
If You’re Over Me is the second piece of a fantasy where humans have become a rare commodity. Tinged with a sense of melancholia, it is an infectious track soaring on blissful melodies and sweet vocals. The visual accompaniment brings a marvellous spectacle of vibrant dance choreography and stunning imagery, adding a unique feature to the whole story. Watch the clip below.
Olly says of the track:
This is a song about trying to stay friends with an ex. Spoiler alert – it doesn’t often work. In fact, in my experience, the relationship often ends up ruined. ‘If You’re Over Me’ is about the emotional torture that ensues – meeting up and making out, then breaking up all over again, then making out some more.
Palo Santo is set for release on July 6th via Polydor Records.
The record takes its name from a sacred wood but, in the densely woven fictional backstory of the music video and short film, Palo Santo has also become a city on a distant planet, on which human beings are a rare commodity, worshipped and idolized by an android society. Olly, along with the final humans, is recruited to perform in a series of bizarre erotic cabarets, for an artificial master known only as The Showman.
