Years & Years were formed in 2010 in London when Michael Goldsworthy and Emre Turkman met online while looking to start a band; they'd eventually be joined on vocals by actor Olly Alexander after hearing him singing at a friend's house while taking a shower. The trio's synth pop sound first gained exposure when the single Traps was released on Kitsuné Music in 2013. The group's second EP, Real, came out in February 2014 and with some impressive live dates under their belts, the trio announced they had signed a deal with Polydor. Their first major-label single Take Shelter appeared in the August -- as well a collaboration with the Magician on Sunlight a month later -- followed by the release of Desire. In 2015, on the heels of winning the prestigious BBC Sound Of award, Years & Years released their debut full-length album Communion.
