Australian indie pop duo Yuma X have enlisted Home and Away star Lukas Radovich for their brand new video.

25-year-old Lukas, who has played Ryder Jackson on the Aussie soap since 2017, plays a young guy grappling with his sexuality in Yuma X's video for new single 'Secret Lover', which, appropriately enough, revolves around a steamy gay affair.

The newly-released visual sees Lukas' character go for a weekend away with his girlfriend and another couple, but - plot twist - it turns out the guys only have eyes for each other.

Yuma X, which is compirsed of vocalist Lucy Washington and producer Jake Smith, said they hoped the video would help fans and viewers feel "more free to be themselves".

Of the process of shooting the video, Washington explained: "I cast Lukas early in the process, and he came over to my apartment and we sat down and wrote the script together.

"We shot the studio scenes the day after the Mardi Gras parade which felt really perfect, the energy on set was magical. The following weekend, we stayed at a tiny Airbnb in the countryside to film the rest of the video.

"The cast and crew were all together in the tiny tin shack, which was amazing, we felt like a tight knit family. I am so grateful to bring the project to life.

"My hope is that whoever watches this will feel less alone and more free to be themselves."
