Years and Years - Traps
When it comes to finding bands that are going to matter in the indie elecro pop world, Kitsuné sure knows how to pick them. If I had to name all of the great acts that the clothing / music label has introduced me to over the years, it would be a mighty long list. The latest band that Kitsuné has brought to my attention is Years and Years. Fronted by actor Olly Alexander (Skins, Gulliver's Travels), the band's new single "Traps" is interestingly split into two parts. The first half of the song features Alexander's dreamy vocals backed by a minimalist instrumental track before building up to a synth jam supported by a post-punk like beat. Look for the official release of "Traps" on September 9th.
