ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No.16 Years & Years

While the production trio Years & Years have been on the "ones to watch list" for the best part of the last 12 months, it has only been in the last few weeks that their profile has blown through the roof and could see them become one of the biggest new names of next year.

Being an underground favourite on the ultra-trendy Kitsuné label has aided their public appearance and given people an idea of what to expect from them, but it was their contribution to the recent single from cult Balearic producer The Magician, 'Sunlight', that propelled them into the mainstream spotlight and landed them, and The Magician, their first UK top 10 single.

Now off the back of that success, Years And Years have unveiled their latest EP 'Take Shelter' and a new single 'Desire', both of which have started to begin regular rotation on a number of national radio stations and cementing themselves as one of the most in-demand acts of the moment.

While it is still early days for the outfit, there is no denying that Years & Years have the talent and drive to go the full mile. Their subtle fusion of glossy house and solemn pop is proving an irresistible combination and will no doubt serve them well when the hype reaches its peak.
