Well, clearly, I’ve been living under a rock or something, because I’ve only just discovered these guys. And to anyone who already knew about them but lacked the requisite respect for me to inform me, there’s a special spot reserved in musical Hell for you.
Years & Years is a British – well, not exactly boy band – but male musical trio, with lead vocals by Olly Alexander, whose voice has now become a weird form of catharsis for me. Granted, he’s no Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran or Alejandro Manzano, but he’s got a certain je ne sais quoi that I’m definitely digging.
If you thought this post wasn’t going to expose my usual psychopathic tendencies, get ready to be rudely corrected. I first found out about Years & Years at a club I went to last Friday, and I was so enthralled by this mystery band that I literally stood right there on the dancefloor and googled the lyrics to King until I found out who they were. So, just in the event you needed a little anecdote to make you feel less like a weirdo… you’re welcome.
