New Release: You Me At Six - Reckless

22 October Critic Jonni 0 Comments

You Me At Six are one of those bands who releases some good music and then some not so great stuff. In this case, the song is extremely catchy and currently stuck in my head.

You Me At Six are a five-piece band consisting of Josh Franceschi, Max Helyer, Chris Miller, Matt Barnes and Dan Flint. They have been around for quite some time, dipping in and out of the UK Chart. Their new song is "Reckless" is probably, in my opinion, one of their better songs as I can't stop listening to it. A lot of people have compared it to The Killer's "When You Were Young" and yes they are very similar, but it's such a catchy song why should it matter if they seem the same?

This music video is taken off a gig off their tour, therefore making a big performance piece. I like that there are scenes edited in showing the band having fun and doing what they do best.

The tour performance in this video really shows off how much energy the band gives off, clearly their fans are enjoying it and the fact that Josh even touches a fan with his hand and then even the crowd sing the lyrics back during the song, really makes me interested in what their gigs are like. Clearly you wouldn't be disappointed if you saw this band on tour.

However this is all I can say about the video. The song is extremely catchy and they could've tried to do something with this video, but they have decided on a good performance based video, and although it's great to watch it doesn't interest me into watching it again and again and again. However the song makes me want to listen to it over and over and over. Therefore, I'm going to be generous and give this video this rating.
