The original track is taken from Years & Years’ ‘Communion’ debut, Olly Alexander leading with a distinctive, emotionally-strung vocal. Here, he’s chipmunk’ed and given a deranged backing of squeak-tastic synths and cheesy pan pipe effects. If the charts were collectively given a new sheen and raised up a few pitches, this would be top of the pile.
