Years & Years have released the video for their new track “Shine”.
The song begins with driving beats, laced with dreamy R&B harmonies that morph into a full-throttle dance number, gloriously capturing the butterflies-in-the-belly thrill of falling in love.

“The metaphor of ‘shine’ and ‘shining’ comes from the way somebody can make you feel totally brand-new and special and re-made in the light of their love, but how that can feel incredibly unstable and overwhelming and make you want to destroy yourself,” explains vocalist Olly Alexander.
Years & Years will release their hotly anticipated debut full-length album, entitled
Communion, on July 10th via Interscope Records. Pre-order HERE.
Formed in London, Years & Years consists of bassist Mikey Goldsworthy, keyboard player Emre Turkmen, and vocalist Olly Alexander. Olly joined the band after Mikey heard him singing in the shower during a party at his house. The group signed with Polydor Records and released their Take Shelter EP last August. The title track climbed to No. 1 on iTunes’ UK Singles Electronic chart. In addition to winning the BBC Sound of 2015 Poll, the band were also short-listed for the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award.
