Years & Years has released the music video for their latest single “If You’re Over Me.”
The video continues the narrative of the dystopian world Palo Santo, introduced in the group’s first music video “Sanctify,” where androids have taken over and humans must obey them.
“The human cabarets of Palo Santo are attended by androids, all hoping to experience real emotion,” the video says in the beginning. “Human performers can find themselves dancing the same routines for weeks … months … years …”
Out frontman Olly Alexander is seen giving a glittery, cabaret performance while sneaking flirty looks with one of his co-performers.
Alexander told NME that the song is about the difficulties of staying friends with an ex.
“This is a song about trying to stay friends with an ex,” Alexander says.“Spoiler alert — it doesn’t often work. In fact, in my experience, the relationship often ends up ruined.”
