YEARS & YEARS - SINGLE REVIEW

Years & Years - Real (Kitsune) 
Years & Years - Real

Release Date: 17th February 2014

OK, Years & Years are a trio from London made up of Olly, Michael and Emre who create Soulful Electronic Pop. One look at their press shots also tells me they are hipsters. Or homeless. Either way, they are making music that I can't quite figure out if I like or not. On the one hand, 'Real' has a sexy bass line and a great pulsating beat that will have many a head nodding in cool bars across Dalston before long. But on the other hand, the melody and vocals just kind of wash over you without hitting any real pressure points or emotional highs. It's not a bad track but it neither offends nor delights me which is a shame. Kinda like a wet, grey Sunday with Escape To Victory on the TV - not bad but there will be better Sundays in your life.
