YEARS & YEARS – Take Shelter + profile : Olly Alexander





Founded :  2010


Genre :  Soulful Electronic Pop


Members :  Olly + Michael + Emre


Hometown :  London


Record Label :  Polydor


Current Location :  London


The London trio grabbed a spot on a Kitsune compilation last year, sparking a flurry of interest in their off kilter synth pop charms.

Since then, the band have played number shows – including one in an abandoned tube station – before attracting the attention of  Polydor.

Signing that fateful Major Label Deal, Years & Years now have it all to prove – thankfully, their stunning pop touch remains.

New cut ‘Take Shelter’ is all glistening production and blazing synths, with Years & Years only amplifying their charms.

From Clash Music & Unpopular Lyrics


Years & Years – Take Shelter (lyrics)


I’ll wait until you have to go,
I’ll make it so you never ever know
How much I have messed it up!
We’re running ’round like we don’t care,
It’s gonna leave its marks somewhere,
Do you want to show me something new?
(You go now, reached my top anyway
You go now, reached my top anyway)

Just tell me what I have to do,
To keep myself apart from you
All your colors start to burn
I know I wanted far too much,
Then I thought that wouldn’t be enough
All this talk is closing you.

Take shelter,
Take the pressure,
Do what you want tonight, it’s alright,
If you want to get used,
You get used!
Take shelter,
Take the pressure,
Do what you want tonight, it’s alright,
If you want to get used,
Then get used!

I don’t really wanna stop myself
Nobody’s gonna tell me I need help,
Are you coming over soon?
I need you at the darkest time
You hold me, and I have to shut my eyes
I’m shy, cannot be what you like.
(You go down, reached my top anyway
You go down, reached my top anyway)
Just tell me what I have to do,
To keep myself apart from you
All your colors start to burn.

And take shelter,
Take the pressure,
Do what you want tonight, it’s alright,
If you want to get used,
Then get used!
Take shelter,
Take the pressure,
Do what you want tonight, it’s alright,
If you want to get used,
Then get used!

I don’t really need this pressure to go
If you wanna find love,
If you wanna find something more
I’ll be the one to run for you.
I don’t really need this pressure to go
If you wanna find love,
If you wanna find something more
I’ll be the one to run for you!

Take shelter,
Take the pressure,
Do what you want tonight, it’s alright,
If you want to get used,
Then get used!
Take shelter,
Take the pressure,
Do what you want tonight, it’s alright
If you want to get used!
