A note from altrocklife: Hey everyone! I know Years & Years aren’t the type of music I usually cover on this blog, but secretly I’m a big fan! My fellow Bournemouth University student Lois Shearing from Faithfull Words went to see them at the BIC and reported back about their performance.
Years and Years are a three-piece band whose sound is described as ‘electropop’. They reached number one in March 2015 with their single King and had a number two hit with Shine. The trio’s début album Communion entered the UK album charts at number one, while shifting 9K copies in the US in its first week. Years and Years are noted for having one of the few openly gay front men in the pop industry.
