Olly Alexander Tries to Get Over a Dystopian Lover in the New 'If You're Over Me' Video

Taylor Henderson

Olly Alexander's struggles to get over an ex in Years & Years' new, bubbly track, "If You're Over Me."

The visuals, released yesterday, are the second in a series of dystopian music videos set in a future metropolis called Palo Santo, where enslaved humans now entertain emotionless androids. 

Alexander talked about the track with NME, saying, "This is a song about trying to stay friends with an ex. Spoiler alert—it doesn’t often work. In fact, in my experience, the relationship often ends up ruined."

He continued:

"'If You’re Over Me' is about the emotional torture that ensues—meeting up and making out, then breaking up all over again, then making out some more."
