Years and Years - King

Years and Years King

Depending on when you're reading this, Years and Years are either about to win the BBC Sound of 2015 poll, or they haven't.

And if they haven't, then they should have.

Because tracks like King deserve to be played on repeat for the next year.

Because their electro, house, R&B sound sums up so much of what makes pop music great at the moment, yet remains somehow unique.

Because the video for the darkly sensual Real features Ben Whishaw in his sexiest role.

Because the soulful, balearic feel of King follows on beautifully from the big beats of Take Shelter and Desire.

Because a week into 2015 and King is already one of the best songs of the year.


Listen: King is released on March 1st.
