You Me At Six are one of those bands that just keep getting bigger and bigger as each new CD is released. Coming up on October 3, 2011 is the new album Sinners Never Sleep and to keep the drooling fans at bay, “Loverboy” will be released the week previous.
The band have warned that although there are a few ballads included on Sinners Never Sleep, the music in general has become increasingly heavier. This is more than apparent on “Loverboy”. A thick guitar riff leads the song out of the speaker, before it is repeated in sinister fashion by Matt Barnes’ bass guitar. The quietly spoken Josh Franeschi then brings the track into an explosion of noise for an unforgettable chorus. A quick verse follows before the band delve into the chorus again and keep up the momentum into the bridge. After a brief pause You Me At Six launch into one final hurrah with the infectious chorus.
It is hard to find a fault with the song. The lyrics, considering the bands youth, are actually quite mature and dripping with the right amount of angst, while the music is a near-perfect backdrop. On this type of form Sinners Never Sleep may just be an unprecedented success.
