Supernatural goings-on in Years & Years latest video, which sees frontman Olly Alexander wandering around an empty house while strange things occur around him, but look a little deeper behind the song itself, and as he explains:
"The metaphor of 'shine' and 'shining' comes from the way somebody can make you feel totally brand-new and special and re-made in the light of their love, but how that can feel incredibly unstable and overwhelming and make you want to destroy yourself."
This track just encapsulates how love is a myriad of complicated emotional juxtapositions, like that feeling of smiling inside, which is momentarily, actually about finding your own despair hilarious.
‘Shine’ is released on July 5th, and you can pre-order the new album 'Communion' out on July 10th HERE - look out for my interview with the band coming soon for INBEDWITH magazine.
