Okay, okay, first things first. You need to go listen to SUCKAPUNCH by You Me At Six because it’s a phenomenal album. The original version of ‘Glasgow?’ Beautiful, showstopping, and emotionally brilliant. The ‘Glasgow’ orchestral performance takes it to a whole new level. It heightens the emotions of the song tenfold, as You Me At Six performs ‘Glasgow’ backed by a 30-piece orchestra.
‘Glasgow’ Orchestral Performance
Josh Franceschi’s vocals are raw, powerful, and stand out against the backing track in this performance, which took place at the historic Abbey Road Studios. Josh noted that performing here was a collective goal for the band and we’re so happy to see them achieve it! The full orchestra coming in combined with the original build-up to the guitars and instrumental of the last 60 seconds of the song leads to a beautiful masterpiece of a track. Seriously, we didn’t think this song could get any better but we’re so glad that You Me At Six proved us wrong! The ‘Glasgow’ orchestral performance is spectacular and we will most definitely have it on repeat for a while!
SUCKAPUNCH has proved to be a real hit for You Me At Six. It’s garnered a lot of praise since its release and rightfully so. It’s always nice to see reworked versions of songs, especially tracks as powerful as ‘Glasgow.’ We can’t wait to see what else this era has in store for fans and we’re ready for whatever the band hits us with next!
