Electropop Trio Years & Years Will Tour North America This Fallby Matthew Scott Donnelly | PopCrush
In just a few short months, Years & Years will finally be stateside.
The British electropop trio, whose debut Communion hits stores next month, have announced a fall North American tour that begins on September 14 in Toronto and wraps up on September 30 in Los Angeles. The group’s currently playing sold-out shows across Europe and in Australia.
Years & Years achieved massive success in the UK with breakup-plea “King,” notching a No. 1 on the country’s charts, and have since released “Shine,” the video for which finds singer Olly Alexander struggling to contend with other-worldly creatures.
The trio’s blend of soul and dance floor-primed pop have already earned them standing as MTV’s “Artist to Watch.” According to a January interview with BBC, Alexander is just happy that the band’s sound is catching on.
“We all love making music and it feels like there should be more authentic acts in mainstream music and we’d like to be one of those,” he said.
