You Me At Six Reveal New Video For '3AM'
You Me At Six have revealed the official video for their latest single, '3AM', taken from their sixth studio album VI, out October 5th.
The video, that splits into two contrasting segments, spells out a night like no other and presents what frontman Josh Franceschi thinks happened (Act 1: Expectation), swiftly followed by the truth of what actually happened (Act 2: Reality).
Speaking of the video, Franceschi comments; “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” Director, Dan Broadley, also says; "I remember really early on in the process, we had this unhinged creative conversation about what we all wanted this video to be and how we wanted to push the boundaries of what people expected of You Me At Six. I recalled this amazing scene in The Wolf Of Wall Street where it shows Leo making it back home in his Lamborghini whilst totally off his head on drugs, however it later reveals what really happened... and the journey didn't go as well as he remembered. I loved that idea and wanted to adapt it to a 'night out' scenario where Josh plays this bouncy alter-ego of himself. I think a highlight was persuading the guys to learn a full dance routine to perform at the climax of the song...”
VI is out October 5th.
