Years and Years | The Whale
London quintet Years and Years released their debut single (“I Wish I Knew”), which I wrote about here a few weeks ago, but there’s also a b-side track called “The Whale”. It’s a much more downtempo track that the band posted on soundcloud for you to stream. There’s an obvious touch of Jeff Buckley in lead singer Olly Alexander’s voice of lullabies, as the elegiac track waltzes around his crooning. You can follow the band at facebook. — David D.
