Years & Years Perform Sell-Out Show At Roundhouse
Years & Years brought Palo Santo to the Roundhouse this Tuesday 10th July with an incredible sell-out show in support of their new album â€˜Palo Santoâ€™. Part of the bandâ€™s â€˜Palo Santo Partiesâ€™ which has seen them perform in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Berlin and London, the band played to a sell-out home crowd performing tracks from debut album â€˜Communionâ€™ and new release â€˜Palo Santoâ€™.
Earlier in the day, Olly appeared on ITVâ€™s Lorraine to chat about the new album, the live show and offered advice to children who are struggling with their sexuality based on his own life experiences.
â€˜Palo Santoâ€™ the album has received rave reviews across the board and a selection of quotes are below:
“Olly Alexander is a pop icon for this generation”Â Independent 4/5
â€œPalo Santo is transcendentâ€Â Stereogum
â€œA pure pop bullseyeâ€¦entirely disarmingâ€Â Q Magazine 4/5
“It’s brilliant pop music filled with heart, soul, tears and glitter”Â Time Out 4/5
â€œA stunning, complete workâ€¦ an almost unheard of motherlode that sets a new high barâ€Â Dork 6/5
“Sure-footed, supercharged second album for electronic pop trio”Â Mojo 4/5
â€œMy favourite pop record of the decadeâ€Â Attitude 5/5
â€œOlly Alexander is Britainâ€™s most exciting popstarâ€ The Times
â€œItâ€™s probably not what anyone expects a male pop star to do in 2018. But listening to the astute, convincingly ambitious Palo Santo, you wish more of them wouldâ€
