As Years & Years round the home stretch to their debut LP, Communion (due out July 10), their offering of new music and videos has become more and more impressive. We've heard a decent number of tracks from Communion ("King", "Desire", "Take Shelter", and "Real") but "Shine" certainly matches the overall tone of the record.
Dancehall influences, Olly Alexander's signature vocals, and enigmatic visuals for the music video make this release a fitting preamble for the album.
The video gets seriously intense as members of Years & Years try to navigate their way through total chaos and destruction. The group have a penchant for slightly more conceptual and visual videos and "Shine" is no exception.
