With their nostalgic lyrics and infectious alt-rock melodies, You Me At Six’s eccentric attitude had the whole crowd at the O2 Academy bouncing off their feet. Opening with their hit ‘When We Were Younger’ from their 2011 album Sinners Never Sleep, the sextet from Surrey brought the roof down in complete and utter style. With their electrifying choice of lighting, this gig was destined to be a night to remember from the moment the band walked ontothe stage. Airing two new two songs, ‘Plus One’ and Swear from their upcoming 5th record Night People, it’s clear that YMAS are set to return with a bang.
