Singled Out: You Me at Six's 'Cold Night'
'Cold Night' is a track off our 4th studio album, Cavalier Youth, which in particular was a very difficult song to wrap up. Max our guitarist had the verse riff idea for around a year until we eventually went to a practice space to begin writing the record. 'Cold Night' from the moment we began writing it as a band was a headache, the problem child of the record.
We had a first idea that we absolutely loved but could not write a chorus we felt did it justice. Fast forward six months to when we began pre production in Los Angeles and we still don't really have a chorus. It was slowly but surely becoming a song we were going to shelf and move on from.
We'd never done anything like that, so at first it was difficult to accept this sound as a youmeatsix sound, but I think this method and way of thinking ultimately set a new precedent for the record as a whole, we would try anything and everything on every song, regardless if it initially sounded like 'us' or not. It was pretty liberating, and moving forward definitely helped shaped this record.'
