Watch the clip below, and read Olly Alexander’s own thoughts about the track/video. Enjoy…!
“I did a play with Ben and he’s such a brilliant dancer, like an electric eel or something. The track has a big dance element and I wanted to see people dancing the way that Ben does, in a way that is almost out of control, like they’ve been hypnotized or something.”
