Right, here’s how it is going to go. I am going to review an album that hasn’t come out yet.
Yes, you read that right folks. I am going to do something hardly anyone has ever done, except for most music critics and kids who have a lot of time of their hands.
About Years & Years
Right simply put, they are a British Electronica band and consist of 3 people. They used to have more, but now they don’t. Their music style is pretty smooth, misxing R&B, HipHop and smooth eDM.
I know absolutely nothing about this other than it should be really bloody good.
Take Shelter: Great dance track with a pretty decent video. Love the sound and they’re able to effectively bring in lyrics into what is essentially a dance track. They don’t overpower each other, which is a nice change from the norm.
King: currently one of their biggest hits and you can see why. A bunch of gyrating adrogynous white people. What’s not to like? Also it is a good song.
For an eDM or dance band their lyrics are top notch. However I try to keep it genre neutral so overall they get a 7. Doesn’t mean they’re bad, just that they can’t compete with people like Childish Gambino or Kings of Leon.
Highly underrated band when it comes to their sound. Some reviewers call them the rebirth of British eDM now that Disclosure got all commercial, but most gloss over the fact they are slightly reinventing the sound of British dance.
Great singer. Looks like a dandy, probably is one, but who cares. The guy’s got a great voice and coupled with a decent songwriting skill, he’s a winner.
When it comes out, I suggest buying it. I really do.
How to get it, well here’s some of their official links:
You can also find them on streaming music services like Deezer. I am currently in China and all music streaming services not from China are blocked. So…
