Single Review: Years & Years – If You’re Over Me

years & years if you're over me

Years & Years launch second Palo Santo single ‘If You’re Over Me’
Years & Years rose to international fame back in 2015 with hit singles like ‘King’ and ‘Desire’ taken from debut album Communion. They started the promotion for upcoming second album Palo Santo (out on the 6th of July) in March with the first single ‘Sanctify’ and a post apocalyptic storyline in the video. The second single ‘If You’re Over Me’ is out now and sounds a lot lighter in terms of production. The hand clap and high synth sound based instrumentation leads to an infectious, breezy chorus that makes you expect happier subject matter. The lyrics however deal with Olly finding out that his partner is done with him but does not have the guts to tell him to his face. Luckily, this makes the Years & Years singer realize that he is better off without that guy anyway! ‘If You’re Over Me’ is a decent single with a nice enough chorus, but it does miss the instant spark that singles like ‘King’ and ‘Shine’ had.
