Their previous single ‘Real’ dropped in February last year, and since we’ve had Years & Years pretty much on replay Well today the popular trio have treated us to the new single, ‘Take Shelter’.

Take Shelter’ takes place in a forest and sees the band follow a mysterious girl splattered in paint and clad in a coat of matted wool and hair through the trees. Lead vocalist Olly Alexander explained the meaning behind the track: “The song is about a relationship, how I felt manipulated by somebody but sort of liked it.” Years & Years is an English electronica trio founded in London,  The group consists of frontman and keyboardist Olly Alexander, bassist Mikey Goldsworthy and synth player Emre Turkmen. Years & Years’ music has been described as electro pop, mixing R&B and ’90s house elements, with Flying Lotus, Diplo, Radiohead and Jai Paul being their core influences
