Palo Santo

    Years And Years Palo Santo Vinyl      The bold concept behind Years & Years second album is further explored in the upcoming short film directed by Fred Rowson and starring Olly Alexander, Judi Dench and cult Thai actor Vithaya Pansringarm amongst others. The record takes its name from a sacred wood but, in the densely woven fictional backstory of the music video and short film, Palo Santo has also become a city on a distant planet, on which human beings are a rare commodity, worshipped and idolized by an android society. Olly, along with the final humans, is recruited to perform in a series of bizarre erotic cabarets, for an artificial master known only as The Showman.   Part full-blooded, escapist fantasia and part social comment, for Years & Years this is about outlier pop as futurism once more, offering solutions when the wider world is transforming beyond recognition. With Olly drawing as much inspiration from cult sci-fi as the multi-sensory pop of Prince, Bowie or Gaga, in Palo Santo Years & Years have created the perfect space in which to tell their most intimate, personal stories; on identity, sexuality, performance, and ultimately, what it means to be human.    Review of Years & Years - Palo Santo by Thomas Bleach I was really unsure how Years & Years highly anticipated second studio album would actually turn out because the lead singles Sanctify and If Youre Over Me were a little below average at best. However Palo Santo is actually a bold collection of songs that are full of attitude, emotion and honest storytelling. Most of the record centres around lead singer Olly Alexanders very public break-up which saw him become a little lost and reflective. The album launches straight into the future hit Hallelujah which is full of a lot of energy and hears him questioning his desire to have someone. The production is very bold and will have you dancing instantly which will perfectly transition into the other future hit All For You. Its obvious that this song was made for the arenas they are bound to be playing in support of this record and is an anthem in its own right. Continuing this trend Karma, Rendezvous and Preacher will have you vibing and reminiscing about their big indie-pop meets dance wave tracks from their debut album that you love so much. Hypnotised Here and Lucky Escape hears them stripping it back completely for a couple of simplistic ballads but their raw vulnerability is lacking compared to the ballads from their debut. The emotion and storylines are very different and I was waiting to be really entranced by Alexanders vocals but it never happened. This album is kind of the perfect length. Its not too long that you are begging for more and its not too short the you want and need more. Its an album full of moments. Some are great and some are forgettable. But its the great moments that will have you buzzing and wanting to witness their new live show ASAP.  See more from Thomas on his website
