Three Years Younger is an indie-pop duo formed in Suffolk in 2016, made up of sisters Megan and Charlotte Simpson. Having sung together since they can remember, it was only natural that the sisters began writing songs together, and started to consider music a professional career. Both being emotionally driven artists, many of Three Years Younger’s songs have complicated and compelling backstories, which narrate challenging moments in their lives. Having spent the majority of their teenage years in the music industry, Three Years Younger feel they have a unique perspective on growing up, and therefore many of their songs focus on themes such as friendship, loss and betrayal.


Over the past few years they have had success around the Cambridgeshire and Suffolk areas, winning the Under 18s Cambridge Band Competition and Kimberley Rew Award (for their song Ghost Ship), and performing at Strawberry Fair, the Cambridge Folk Festival, the Pig’s Big Ballroom at Camp Bestival and the Big Weekend in Cambridge.


Last year, Three Years Younger released their debut Ep Close the Door, which was self-produced during coronavirus isolation. The Ep itself received critical acclaim from Howlin’ Mag, GrapevineLIVE, Cambridge 105, Sound Street Radio and BBC Introducing, earning them large amounts of radio play and a live set and interview on BBC Introducing Suffolk. After Inside, the final song on the Ep, received third place in the Radio Indie Alliance Charts.

In 2021 Three Years Younger reached new heights after being scouted by BBC Introducing Suffolk presenter Angelle Joseph to perform at the Cult Café in Ipswich before having their new release Just an Echo promoted on BBC Radio 1. She went on to describe them as “A really exciting band to watch for the future.”


Other exciting things to watch out for include a high-budget music video with Digital Saint Productions (for their song Close the Door), BurySOUND, and an updated sound ready for summer festivals.
