London quintet Years & Years release debut single "I Wish I Knew" [Video]

Years and Years

Rising London quintet Years & Years are set to release their irresistible debut single "I Wish I Knew" on September 24, 2012 through the Good Bait imprint.

Intricately weaving a patchwork of laptop rhythms, razor sharp guitar riffs and deep sub-bass, Years & Years have created their own distinctive brand of danceable, folk tinged electro-pop.

Their debut single "I Wish I Knew" showcases Years & Years ability to cleverly juxtapose warm organic instrumentation with electronic elements, to produce innovative and intelligent sing-a-long pop.

Accompanied by slower and sweeping B-side "The Whale", this first taste of Years & Years offers a perfect introduction to this new and exciting band.

Throwing out the rulebook, the band describe their open-minded approach to songwriting, guitarist Emre explains, "Someone will come in with a concept or an idea and then we basically bash the living shit out of it until we have something great."

Their formation was also somewhat unorthodox with two of the members, Noel and Mikey, meeting at a protest against Heathrow airport's expansion in 2010. Emre and Olivier soon followed, joining the band after answering an advert online. However the group still lacked a singer. It was by chance that Mikey found lead vocalist Olly; "I was round a friend's house where Olly was renting a room, heard him singing in the shower and thought, 'Yeah, he's got a good voice'."

Already counting BBC 6 Music's Lauren Laverne as an admirer, Years & Years look set to continue attracting fans with the stunning release of "I Wish I Knew".
