Years & Years 'doing' Ariana Grande is predictably great

The BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge is a magical place. By which we mean, it’s a place where bands have to agree to play a cover from a set list of options if they wish to have a prime slab of airtime.

Not that we’re complaining - it keeps us stocked with interesting takes on recent pop hits. Today’s attendees offered up a predictably great effort, as Years & Years aired their version of Ariana Grande’s ‘No Tears Left To Cry’.

Capable of crafting their own pop emergencies, Olly and co add a lemon twist that fizzes like a freshly carbonated beverage.

Years & Years released their second album ‘Palo Santo’ last week. You can check out their cover of ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ below.
