Years & Years Won The BBC Sound Of 2015 Poll So We Rang Them
Olly wants their new found success to turn into John Lewis coupons
There’s some psychic juice in the water, because as we (kind of?) predicted, Years and Years have won the BBC Sound of 2015 poll. Olly, Emre and Mickey have been recognised by the beeb as a trifector of electro pop goodness, beating off James Bay, George the Poet and 13 others to win the poll that was last year topped by Sam Smith.
We gave them a little call in the midst of a hand shaking tour of Radio One, to talk about Ellie Goulding giving them props, what the most ego massaging thing someone’s said to them is and who, if anyone, they’d least like to piss off.
