London producer Tourist has shared a video for his Years & Years-featuring track “Illuminate,” which came out last month. The trippy video was animated by Nicolas Ménard and tells a story of sorts in geometric patterns, inspired by experimental Japanese artists like Yuichi Yokoyama and retro video games. We start by following a pair of hands down a series of seemingly unending hallways that are marked by shimmering and fuzzy squares, and things get more chaotic as it continues, adding in colors and some other cool effects. “It’s been a real blast to direct Tourist’s ’Illuminate’ music video. Not only because it’s such a playful, awesome sounding track, but also because Will was keen to jump straight into the weird abstract universe I’d suggested,” Ménard said in a press release. “It’s also been really fun to play with the idea of translating a poem into Korean; a little metaphor for miscommunication in a relationship. I’m looking forward to seeing whether people dig out those cryptic messages..
