Years & Years took to the John Peel Stage on day 2 of the famous Glastonbury Festival to give a knockout performance. Gig Wise writer Andrew Trendell agreeing too:
“Olly Alexander and co smash first ever Glasto”
Many people who have seen the synth trio live will know that they are in their element live and really do put on a show. It being there first time to play at the festival however the sheer crowds who turned out to watch the group wouldn’t have shown this.
The trio began the 50 minute set off with a new song from their album named foundation followed by their flagship Take Shelter and Desire. The group carried on the set with new songs from their album Communion which dropped on the 10th July reaching number 1 in the UK album charts and the US Dance charts.
The group did a cover of Breathe by Sean Paul and Blu Cantrell which got the crowd hooked and really did show off the groups pure talent in making music their own genre; the cover can be heard here on SoundCloud. https://soundcloud.com/yearsandyears/breathe
To finished off, their number 1 single King was performed which set the crowd off and ended a great set from the group, clearly leaving the crowds wanting more.
The group’s new album Communion can be bought online now and in store:
