Years & Years Conquer NYC

Years & Years made their return to New York for their 3rd sold out show at Terminal 5 and wowed the crowd. Since their first US show at Rough Trade in January, I’ve been hooked on Olly’s vocals and it’s undeniable that they offer much more than their record. I was so convinced that they were an incredible band that I even travelled to Boston to witness more of the magic they create on stage. One thing I love about this band is that they’re the most humble group of guys, looking genuinely shocked of their success and thank fans after every song. It truly impresses me how much love they get from their fans and they never fail to deliver a memorable performance every time.
Despite the fact that the view isn’t so great at Terminal 5 unless you get there early and secure a close spot to the stage, the band excited the crowd with their electro-pop tunes that made your body uncontrollably dance to the beat. Emry (keyboard) and Mikey (bass) looked calm and collected as always keeping straight faces while Olly showed some of his effortlessly rad dance moves. The set started off with “Foundation” which showcased Olly’s vibrant vocals hitting perfect high notes. Everyone had their phones out trying to capture this moment on video. Fans got a real treat when Olly jumped off stage and started mingling with the front row. A mass of people were pushing towards the front and reaching their hands out in hopes of having a chance to touch him. The band finished the night off with “King” while donning a paper crown, conquering every heart in the crowd.
