Thomas & Molly’s Music Reviews: Years & Years

Thomas Flatmoen & Molly Undall
Mast Radio Arts & Culture DJs

Years & Years is an electronic pop trio from London, England. They released their debut album “Communion” in July 2015. The trio have been playing together since 2010, but only recently gained international fame. Their most popular single, “King,” topped many international charts when it was released this summer. The single made us fall in love with their sound. The album showcases their broad talent, including the more emotional song “Memo,” different from their normal pop sound.

The highly successful trio were named the “Sound of 2015” by BBC Radio 1 earlier this fall and are nominated for the BBC Music Awards “British Artist of the Year.”
In September, the group’s lead singer, 25 year old college dropout Olly Alexander, told Metro Weekly that he had never expected to hear the songs he wrote played on the radio, let alone perform them for packed houses around the world.

The band joined Sam Smith on his sold-out UK tour this year, and toured in North America and Europe. Years & Years is joining Ellie Goulding on her spring 2016 U.S. tour dates, and you can catch them in Seattle April 2, 2016
