Years & Years – “Traps”

yandy Years & Years   Traps

We were first introduced to Years & Years last summer, with their debut single “I Wish I Knew.” That was a year ago. A year lapse in some contexts may not be much, but in the ever-changing musical landscape it can be a death sentence, especially when you’re a new artist. In most cases, this period for emerging musicians is essential to not only building a following but also establishing a certain sound associated with your name.

But then there are cases where the music itself is so well done, that the time period between releases is essentially insignificant. Which is what Years & Years has achieved with their absolutely fantastic follow-up single “Traps.” It’s a mesmerizing display of electro-pop led by Olly Alexander’s uniquely subtle but undeniably powerful vocals. The track will be included on their upcoming available ‘Traps’ EP, but even if that takes another year we’d be content with this offering in the meantime.
