Track of the Day: Years & Years – Memo

Years & Years’ chosen pigeon hole, ‘Soulful Electronic Pop’, may be a bit passé, but the Londoners are not to be overlooked. They channel Disclosure’s dancehall demeanour with the sentimentality of Shivum Sharma – another youngster flourishing in the twilight zone between Soundcloud and music festival stages.

‘Memo’ is the trio’s latest single, and it’s an introspective piano ballad tinged with electronic highlights and just enough cheerfulness to keep up their party-ready image. A lounging tempo contrasts the group’s earlier club anthem, ‘Desire’, but thus far everything Years & Years have released sports a crystalline production quality – something they are no doubt ready to export to a live setting during their 2015 UK tour.
