Years & Years have had a brilliant year so far after gaining their first ever number 1 single in January, not to mention being awarded the BBC Music Sound Of 2015 Award just a few weeks ago.
Forming in 2010, the London based trio made up of bassist Mikey, synth player Emre and keyboardist Olly, Years & Years have released 4 singles over the past year that will all be featured on their new album Communion, which will be released on the 10th of July.
Real, Take Shelter and Desire were the bands three 2014 singles, which each progressed higher up the charts than their predecessor, with Desire reaching number 22. It was in January however that Years & Years celebrated their first ever UK Number 1 single, King, the R&B come dance chart topper with Olly’s vocals, Emre’s synth skills and Mikey’s bass playing laid over further production by Andy Smith, which resulted in a Gold single selling over 100,000 copies in the UK.
Released with remixes by The Magician, TCTS and Oceaán, King is hugely danceable that will compliment their live shows with a host of new releases that will be featured on the new album. Years & Years have a long line of tour dates stretching through the summer, with several festival appearances including Leeds & Reading, T In The Park and Glastonbury. After the festival season is over the band will make their way through Australia and Central Europe before coming back to the UK in October.
Years & Years will play at The O2 Academy Leeds on October 14th 2015.
