Ones and Zeros: The Imitation Game?

Zeros Declan McKenna
Declan McKenna's latest video, which sees him team up with actor/look-alike Alex Lawther ([Black Mirror: Shat Up and Dance], The End Of The F***ing World, [The Imitation Game]) to portray "two people, who are very similar, in conflict with each other".
It explores key theme of the album - that "people who are pushed away or feel left out of society" can come together and "care about each other when things go wrong". 
Even though it predates the coronavirus lockdown, the song feels oddly appropriate as communities around the world rally in support of one another.
Responsibility is key at this point in time," he says, "because we don't know what the future is going to look like and we have to be responsible."
A few weeks before the lockdown took hold,
McKenna sat down with the BBC to discuss his new album, which has now been postponed from a planned release in May to 21 August.
