Shiny new things from Years & Years

Death-defying train line trespassers Years & Years have unveiled their new single Shine which, you will be disappointed to hear, is neither an ode to shoe polish nor a cover of the Take That "classic".

Instead, it's a glimmering-but-moody electropop ditty, the inevitable success of which will make Theo Hurts burst with jealousy.

Here's frontman Olly Alexander explaining the inspiration behind the song:

"The metaphor of 'shine' and 'shining' comes from the way somebody can make you feel totally brand-new and special and re-made in the light of their love, but how that can feel incredibly unstable and overwhelming and make you want to destroy yourself".

He sounds like a right barrell of laughs, doesn't he?

Listen below and gird your loins for Years & Years debut album, Communion, which is due out on 10 July.
