TOURIST Reveals Video “Illuminate” featuring Years & Years


Watch: “Illuminate”

Tourist recently announced his new single “Illuminate” featuring Years & Years’ vocalist Olly Alexander, further illustrating his skills as a dynamic producer and artist. Illuminate is awash with neon glowing melodies, delivering the perfect backdrop to the hypnotic animated video courtesy of director and graphic artist Nicholas Ménard of London-based animation studio and production company, Nexus.Inspired by Japanese graphic artists such as Yuichi Yokoyama and retro games X and 3D World Runner, this fully animated video is set in several surreal worlds where communication is lost and confused heart-break takes over. Tackling themes of love, misunderstanding and the hope of a resolution after a breakup, we watch as our protagonist opens letter after letter, written in a language he cannot understand.
