Years & Years

Years & Years
Years & Years is a London electronic pop three-piece made of frontman and keyboardist Olly Alexander, bassist Mikey Goldsworthy and synth player/beat-maker Emre Turkmen.
‘Real’ comes off the back of the trio’s debut single, ‘Traps’, which earned the fast-rising threesome plaudits from the likes of Wonderland, The Fader and the Guardian. Having featured on Kitsuné’s Maison 15 compilation, the buzz from the track saw the group heading out to Paris to support Swim Deep at the Festival Les Inrocks.

The band released their sophomore single, the slow-burning, groovesome ‘Real’, via much-lauded indie dance imprint Kitsuné. Co-produced by Andy Smith, the release also features self-produced B-side ‘Eyes Shut’, a more sombre take on the band’s sound, written in the coastal countryside of East Sussex from a tiny beach house.

With the band having already rode high on Hypemachine (garnering a Top 5 spot) and radio support from the likes of the BBC’s Phil & Alice, Ally McCrae, Monki and Edith Bowman, there’s never been a better time to catch on with Years & Years.
