I made sure I was reasonably awake. While tuning in to the Zoe Ball premier of the new Kylie Minogue and Years & Years track “A Second To Midnight” on her Radio 2 breakfast show. My curiosity to hear the song definitely heightened since Kylie joined Olly (Years & Years) on a version of his recent single “Starstruck“. Although I wasn’t initially slain at my first listen. The track, striking me as being a touch outdated. I continued to stick around for the video premiere anyways, as maybe I would be hit by some special magic there instead.

By this time, I was fuelled up on a nutritious bowl of Museli. Alleviating pangs of hunger and a morning coffee, top-up, seemed to do the trick. The video was directed by Sophie Muller, who we know as a director with an eye for detail (MARINA, Dido, Sophie Ellis-Bextor). But this time, it seemed she had something altogether different in store for us, quirkiness with a dash of humour. As I sat watching, thinking the dance routine and choreography was nice. I suddenly became aware of some playful extraness going on and in the form of dressing up as each other, as though face-swapping. Usually, when using such trickery. The end results come out freakish and odd but not when it’s the beautiful faces of Kylie and Olly. When face-swapped, they just look strangely cute. Safe to say, becoming mesmerised by the video. In turn, lead to more of an appreciation for the track itself.
