10 essential You Me at Six tracks
You Me At Six have worked their way up the stages at Reading Festival and this year, they’re right where they belong – the infamous Main Stage. Ready to blow your tiny minds with their melodies and huge sing-a-long choruses on Friday afternoon their set is going to be something truly special.
If you’re new to the world of YMA6, where the hell have you been for the past ten years? Join us as we count down 10 of their best songs. You can either have a trip down memory lane or immerse yourself in some brand new music, what’s not to like?
Bite My Tongue
Throwing it back to 2011, this is You Me At Six at their heaviest and angriest. Chuck in the addition of Oli Sykes and you’re on to an absolute winner.
Stay With Me
‘STAYYY WITTTTTTTTHHHHH MEEEEEEEEEE’ Yep, this is the one we’ll be crying to as we rock back and forth after our weekend at Reading Fest.
The only bad thing about this song is that it doesn’t last longer.
Take On The World
The album version of this is stunning, but this live version is so raw we can feel our hearts about to burst. Maybe we’re just tired and emotional, you tell us.
Straight To My Head
‘Straight To My Head’ was the third single to be taken from the band’s latest album, ‘VI’. Watch the amazing Rick and Morty-esque style video below.
I O U
Finally, a video we can all recreate in the comfort of our own home. There’s no denying this ain’t a banger though.
‘Night People’ is basically the sound of YMA6 waving goodbye to their roots and taking a new direction for future releases. This title track from the album of the same name totally slaps, we recommend delving into the whole album after this.
Save it for the Bedroom
How in the world this was released 10 years ago? We’ll never know, we’re having so many flashbacks to our youth.
Lived A Lie
The first release to be taken from their fourth studio album, ‘Cavalier Youth’, ‘Lived a Lie’ is about how in music and in life, you only really need to believe in yourself.
Stick this on and turn your speakers up as loud as they’ll go, all we want to do is fast forward to being in a field with our best mates now.
You Me at Six take on the world (see what we did there?) and the Main Stage on Friday at this year’s Reading Festival.
