Years & Years: 'If You're Over Me' 

Years & Years return with the first single from their upcoming album.  Palo Santo will be their second full length album, and single 'If You're Over Me' leads the way.  The song 'Sanctify' and their short film introduced us to the world of Palo Santo with the help of director Fred Rowson and stars Olly Alexander, Judi Dench and Vithaya Pansringar.  They've always been one of those groups that shifts directions slightly, just when you think you've got them figured out.  Watch for Palo Santo July 6th.

Years and Years: 'Eyes Shut' (Tei Shi remix)

After opening for Years & Years on several tour dates this fall, including their first ever Toronto show Tei Shi has remixed one of our favourites songs from the album 'Communion'.  This new version of 'Eyes Shut' adds a bassline that bounces, chops the lyrics into a new form that's quite different from the original.  Tei Shi has managed to make the song happier, without taking it so far it loses it's melancholic edge.  As unique as their show was at Danforth Music Hall, so is their remix collaboration.

Songs From A Room: Years & Years

It's no secret that we are big fans of Years & Years and their debut full length 'Communion'.  This performance is nothing short of stunning.  Olli Alexander plays in front of the New York City skyline for a bar, empty except for the bartender...

VIDEO: Years & Years 'Eyes Shut'

Since their music first found us, we've been big fans of Years & Years.  After catching their first Canadian show at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto, we've grown to love the music and the people who make it even more.  They've just released the video for 'Eyes Shut', a favourite from 'Communion'.  This video sees vocalist Olly Alexander making his way through a world in the midst of the apocalypse, his bandmates make appeareances in this strange, fierce world, and the song gains a strength beyond what it had before.  

Get 'Communion' on iTunes.
