Watch Years & Years and Galantis unveil ‘Sweet Talker’ video

Years & Years’ new album ‘Night Call’ arrives next year.

Ahead of the release of new album ‘Night Call’ on 7th January, Years & Years have unveiled the video for new track ‘Sweet Talker’ featuring Galantis.

Director Sophia Ray comments that the ‘Sweet Talker’ video was “inspired by iconic fantasy films like ‘Labyrinth’ and ‘Gretel & Hansel’: a sickly sweet but dark take on a fairytale, where superstar Olly Alexander finds himself trapped in an enchanted castle by a mysteriously sexy beast. The concept behind the video takes the Greek mythical tale of King Midas, and turns it on its head, where Olly finds a magic sword in his escape through this castle, that turns anyone he slays into candy. Olly had some amazing references and a real clear aesthetic style when it came to the brief for this video, full of whimsy, fashion and fantasy - it got me excited straight away to start coming up with ideas from his moodboards. Olly and I then developed the concept and creative for the video together to really bring it to its full fruition.”
