ONE SENTENCE REVIEWS: Years & Years – "Desire" (feat. Tove Lo)

This week’s One Sentence Reviews comes from a reimagined version of an old Insanity favourite. Years & Years have brought out a new version of early single “Desire” with additional vocals from the brilliant Tove Lo, and we at the Insanity music team thought we’d have our say on the reimagining!

Katie Gamble: “Quite catchy and dancy.”

Molly Pearson: “The song is is not bad, I would listen to it once maybe but it is my desire that it wouldn’t get played again!”

Michael Bird: “Interesting update of a fun, enjoyable track that the band have since eclipsed with more recent material.”

Julia Khlyzova: “High quality disco goodness!”

Jess Temple: “Feel-good summer party vibes!”

Thomas Gibbens – “Why do you have to punish me with autotune?!”

Zoe Stanton – “Catchy, upbeat and uplifting: sounds like a typical Years & Years tune.”
