und You Me At
Six tourten und auf einigen der größten Festivalbühnen Großbritanniens spielten. Kürzlich spielte
die Band beim Download Pilot Festival in UK und erntete begeisterte Kritiken und ein ständig wachsendes Publikum.
"When we sat down to write this, life was bleak", sagt Co-Sänger Jim über ihre neue Single. "Touring had stopped, people were dying and whatever purpose and path I had in life became obsolete. I’d never had to properly deal with sitting down with my thoughts as company. I was angry a frustrated at myself. I knew Han was in the same place, so this concoction of self loathing and desperation began to write itself."
"The song is the anthem of my life. I don't know why I do these things to myself but I just self-sabotage and hope it'll make a difference when it never does", sagt Han. "For me, this is cathartic and it's my truth, the saddest realist song dressed up in a happy melody. Fuck it, yeh I hate myself but now I'm at rock bottom you can't take anything else, and you will never stop me singing."
“We’re angry, both politically and existentially in terms of the system we now live in. But also, we’re angry at the fact that we’re sad quite a lot”, ergänzt Han. “But we’re trying to not just sit there and take it. We’re trying to fix it, by building a family through this band.”
“Life is fragile”, sagt Jim. “You can’t take things with you, but you can make the best memories. That’s the most important thing in life. Your currency is your memory. What you can take with you is something that absolutely makes the blood pump round your veins and gives you goosebumps”, stimmt Han zu. “That’s what this band is to us. It’s our passion. That’s what this EP is about.”
