Years & Years are a London based electro-pop trio signed to Polydor Records. Current members are frontman and keyboardist Olly Alexander, bassist Mikey Goldsworthy and synth player/beat-maker Emre Turkmen.
Years & Years formed in 2010, after Mickey moved from Australia and met Emre online through ‘findabandmate.com’. Shortly afterwards, Olly joined the band as lead vocalist after guitarist Mikey heard him singing in the shower. Alongside 90s R&B, the band cite Flying Lotus, Diplo, Radiohead and Jai Paul as core influences, describing their sound as ‘dance music with heart’.
The band released their debut single,I Wish I Knew in the summer of 2012 through the label Good Bait. Their follow up single in September 2013 was picked up by Kitsuné Records with critical acclaim from The Guardian, Clash Music and The Fader.
