Years & Years

Years & Years

We have a huge music crush on these three kings.

Years & Years is back with the video for ‘King’. It’s another song from the trio about the pain of love, but their first video with impressive dance moves (it was choreographed by Ryan Heffington, who also choreographed SIA‘s ‘Chandelier’)

It’s hard to work out how they do it, but with just one listen of ‘King’, we are already belting it out of the car window, the office, the gym, anywhere really…

Sounds like: Clean Bandit, Cloud Boat, Yes Cadets, Citizens!, How to Dress Well, Lxury, Bondax, SOHN, Flume, Phoenix, All We Are, Ellie Goulding, Jungle, Sam Smith

Years & Years – Desire

Years & Years - Desire

Years & Years – Desire

It may be getting colder outside, but the temperature has risen in the Indietronica office since the first play of new track ‘Desire’ by Years & Years.

The 90’s house-inspired track retains the distinctive claps we frequently hear from Years & Years, whilst taking on more of a modern, Clean Bandit vibe.

The boys have recently finished supporting SOHN and  and are due to support Clean Bandit and Sam Smith on their UK and European tours.

After the success of The Magician‘s ‘Sunlight’ which featured Olly on vocals, we believe that ‘Desire’ is the tune that will make Years & Years. It is out on 23 November.

Sounds like: Clean Bandit, Cloud Boat, Yes Cadets, Citizens!, How to Dress Well, Lxury, Bondax, SOHN, Flume, Phoenix, All We Are, Ellie Goulding, Jungle, Sam Smith

Years & Years – Real

Years&Years_339 RT

London electro-pop trio Years & Year release second single ‘Real’, on Kitsuné on Feb 17th. Co-produced by Lxury, B-side is by ‘Eyes Shut’, which is a more sombre take on the band’s sound, written in a remote beach house on the Sussex coast.

Frontman Olly Alexander comes from a classicist musical upbringing, and draws on iconic pop culture figures such as Joni Mitchell, Jeff Buckley, David Lynch and Raymond Carver – wrapping them in his crooning, melodic tones.

‘Real’ follows the trio’s debut single, ‘Traps’, which earned the fast-rising threesome a welcome response from the blogging community. Listen to ‘Traps’ here

Sounds like: How to Dress Well, Lxury, Bondax, Sohn, Flume, Phoenix, Citizens!
