^ its a valid point though from the other POV of what blueberry wrote (obviously without meaning to say fem gays are bad or anything), Debs probably could’ve worded it better.

Having ‘masculine’ (or even just non-femme seeing as masc has become such a taboo descriptor these days for some) gays as a role model is great for a lot of guys who feel like everyone expects them to camp it up solely because of their sexuality.

That can be done without at all taking away from Olly or any other man on the more fem side ‘doing them’ and being themselves or guys being attacked as internalised homophobia/misogyny for saying that they are not like that.

Back on topic, the song/video does kinda remind of like a ‘Worship’ pt 2. Interested to see what the rest of the album will be like.

I like this track but I hope the follow-up single will be more instant. I need another catchy tune like 'King'.

I feel their album will be concept based and this is just the first step. So I am ready for the next chapter and see what that will unleash. I still love this song though.

I've never liked Years and Years, this song though ticks all the boxes for me. Amazing vocals, brilliant dark sound, nice concept video.

Reminds me thematically of Janelle Monae Many Moons.

I bought this instantly and it actually made me see the lead singer in a new light :oops:

Good performance to be fair, Olly's vocals seem to have improved live and it sold the song to me a bit more.

Good performance!

I was a bit worried that this song wouldn't have legs with me, but I'm still loving it despite overplaying it a bit in the first week.
Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.

I’ve grown to like this after finding it underwhelming upon release. It’s still not the big comeback single they needed though...more fourth would be single off Holly Valance’s debut album.

I was excited at the prospect of the ALMA remix, but it’s a complete mess. Who on earth approved this? ALMA’s voice is literally copy/pasted in and is way too loud compared to the rest of the track. The final chorus is difficult.
