Video of the Moment #2881: You Me at Six

By on Wednesday, 8th August 2018 at 6:00 pm

It’s a big year for long-soldiering Southern alt-rock band You Me at Six. This winter, they are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their debut album ‘Take Off Your Colours’ with a massive UK tour. The demand for tickets to this tour has been so phenomenal, additional dates have been added, but don’t expect tickets to the new gigs to last long. A month before the UK tour kicks off, they will be releasing a new album, ‘VI’ on the 5th of October via AWAL, on their own Underdog Records.

Their newest single ‘3 AM’ taken from the upcoming LP now has its own music video, which put frontman Josh Franceschi in an unusual position, squarely as an actor. Franceschi describes the gist of the video and the difficulties in making it: “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.” Check out the ultra-poppy ‘3 AM’ and Franceschi’s acting chops in the multi-act promo video below.
