I made sure I was reasonably awake. While I was 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 Striking me as being a touch outdated.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 top-up of morning coffee. 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. In the form of dressing up as each other. At first I thought they were 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. My becoming mesmerised by the video. In turn. Lead to more of an appreciation for the track itself.
