Fresh Start Fever

Album: Cavalier Youth (2013)
Charted: 46
  • This was the second single to be released from You Me At Six's fourth studio album, Cavalier Youth. Speaking with Kerrang! magazine, vocalist Josh Franceschi told the story of of this song. "When we started writing in the cottage we rented in Henley, Oxfordshire, we discussed how the album didn't yet have a song that represented what our band had been about until that point," he said. "We wanted to write a big pop-rock song, with exaggerated verses and a jump-up-and-down chorus."

    "Neal (Avron, producer) brought all of his expertise of programmed drums and strings and horns, which gave the song a more layered texture," Franceschi added. "There is a group chant thing in the verse as well that was inspired more by hip-hop artists that we were listening to at the time."
  • This won Best Single at the 2014 Kerrang! Awards.
  • Franceschi told Kerrang!: "We wanted to start a new chapter. That's what this is about – moving forward."
