Formed in London in 2010, Years and Years consists of frontman and keyboardist Olly Alexander, bassist Mikey Goldsworthy and synth player Emre Turkmen.
Goldsworthy and Turkmen met online and shortly afterwards, Alexander joined the band as lead vocalist after Goldsworthy heard him singing in the shower at a friend’s house. Years and Years was originally a five-piece group with two of the members leaving in 2013.
The trio’s synth pop sound first gained traction when their single Traps was released on Kitsune Music in 2013. They released another single with Kitsune, Real in February 2014 and signed with Polydor Records to release their fourth single Take Shelter.
Years and Years has continued to gain exposure and a loyal following in the electropop genre, mixing R&B and 90’s house elements. In January of 2015, they won the prestigious BBC Sound of 2015 and were nominated for the Critics Choice Award at the Brit Awards 2015.
Their debut album Communion is set to be released in July 2015 to the delight of their fans. In support of this new album, Years and Years will be touring the globe with a United States stint planned for the fall. Fans of their unique sound should plan to buy Years and Years tickets to see this talented trio in action live.
