15 Reasons Why You Need To Get On The Years And Years Bandwagon

Posted on April 2, 2015 by
Years & Years

I don’t get obsessed with many acts, but I am obsessed with Years and Years.

After releasing single after single in the U.K., the British-Australian trio are poised to make a major breakthrough in North America this year. Comprised of frontman and keyboardist Olly Alexander (also recognizable for his roles in Skins, God Help The Girl, and The Riot Club), bassist Mikey Goldsworthy and the synth player Emre Turkmen, Years and Years have cultivated a unique electronic-pop-dance sound that makes us want to dance and cry at the same time.

After releasing songs like “Real,” “Take Shelter” and “Desire” in 2014, the band released their North American Y&Y EP in February. Now the band are gearing up to drop their full-length album, Communion, in July (OMG!) and perform on The Late Night With Seth Meyers TONIGHT.

Because we’re such big fan girls here at ANDPOP, here are 15 reasons why you need to jump on the Years and Years bandwagon before they hit it big:

 

15. Their love for cats and dogs makes us want to become a furry little creature just so we can be held by them.
