Years & Years exploded onto London’s pop scene in 2010 and haven’t let up since. Their sound holds true to many of the familiar constructs of 80s synth pop, but much of their charm comes from their snappy yet original take on british electronic R&B.

The group is composed of Mikey Goldsworth, Emre Turkmen, and Olly Alexander who has claimed the role of frontman. Apart from Alexander’s profession as a musician he is also a scriptwriter and actor who has been featured in the films “Bright Star”, “Enter the Void”, “Great Expectations”, and “Le Week-End”. He also starred in Stuart Murdoch’s (lead singer of Belle & Sebastian) directorial debut “God Help the Girl”, a film in which he was granted the opportunity to showcase his musical talent.

The group formed in 2010 originally as a 5 piece. Goldsworthy had just moved from Australia to London and had come into contact with Turkmen through an online forum. Not long after their introduction the 2 conceptualized Years & Years and subsequently invited Alexander to front the band. Noel Leeman and Oliver Subria joined later, but by 2013 the group had reverted back to a trio.

The collective put out their 1st single “I Wish I Kew” in 2012 and In 2013 they issued another single “Traps” as well as their 1st studio EP, also entitled “Traps”. This EP came out through the label Kitsune as did their proceeding EP “Real”. The group changed labels later that year, signing to Copenhagen Records and Polydor in time for their release of the EP “Take Shelter”.

The single “Desire” and it’s corresponding remix EP concluded their solo output for 2014. During this year they had also worked on remixes for The Magician and Tourist. At the start of 2015 they issued their 3rd release on Polydor “Y&Y EP”, which included the single “King”. This year also saw them take the “BBC Sound of 2015” award and receive a nomination for “MTV Brand New For 2015”.
