You Me At Six have dropped a video for their ‘it’s not a Busted cover actually’ banger ‘3AM’.
The video is - and this is their description, not ours - split into two acts. In act 1 (‘Expectation’) you see what frontman Josh Franceschi ‘thinks’ happened, which is followed swiftly by the ‘entertaining truth’ of what actually occurred (‘Reality’).
Speaking about the clip, Josh explains: The idea came from watching Wolf Of Wall Street. In the film there is a scene where the main protagonist (Leonardo DiCaprio) has a split reality when under the influence of what he believes to be true and what is actually true. That just resonated with us. I worked quite closely with Dan Broadley (Director) as I found myself doing a lot of 'acting' in this video. It was new, and a challenge, but he gave me the confidence to embrace it and also have the freedom to go off script”
TL;DR: he watched a film, so they did that.
You Me At Six’s new album ‘VI’ is set for release on October 5th. They’re set to tour it - and their debut album ‘Take Off Your Colours’ which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year - through November and December. You can find those dates here.
