Rock heavyweights You Me At Six are back for their sixth studio album, with two new tracks. ‘3AM’ and ‘Fast Forward’ are two different beasts, from VI. The album comes after 2017’s Night People that didn’t hit the mark like other You Me At Six albums.
‘Fast Forward’ is almost exactly what you’d expect from You Me At Six if you plotted their trajectory as a band. It’s catchy pop-rock with big riffs designed to make you move, a bit like the stuff from Don Broco’s most recent album Technology. It’s slick and it’s tighter than what you’ve seen from the band before.
‘3AM’ is a different beast entirely. It’s bop by any means but it’s a new avenue for You Me At Six undoubtedly. It lends from more indie counterparts such as The Amazons and Sunset Sons. The big riff that opens the chorus is infectious, the lyrics and punchy delivery make the tune all the more catchy.
Give ‘3AM’ a listen here and ‘Fast Forward’ here.
