I don't really discuss music much on here but today is different. One of my favourite bands for the last few years has been You Me at Six. I remember listening to them on Myspace and trying to download the tracks because I didn't know where else to get them! I've got every song on my iTunes, from unreleased acoustics and b-sides to the latest Live at Wembley album from last December and it's all still such good music. I couldn't go to the show due to university deadlines and I was absolutely gutted but I'd seen some of the merchandise from the tour uploaded online and on instagram. When I saw these two items I knew I had to have them.. my housemates will tell you I was refreshing the Kitemco merchandise page for DAYS until these pieces were put up but I missed out on them because of essay writing. I've never loathed Exilius by Jane Barker more in my life.... because I loved it before....(not.)
Reckless Jumper £30 & YMAS Bobble hat £15
I bought the jumper in a medium, I think it's a unisex top and since I don't have a boy figure I thought it'd be best to get some leeway in the boob area. Story of my bloody life! Anyway, it's a really, really nice jumper and even though it's not tailored to females I'd recommend it.
This bobble hat was the other piece on the site that jumped out at me. I've loved my trusty £4.99 beanie for my can't-be-arsed days or for nights in the library....or for the shit-i-woke-up-late-and-can't-wash-my-hair days for the last few months but there comes a time when one must expand one's hat collection and this is the one for me!
I bought and paid for these from this website (click!) on the 1st of February paying £4.00 delivery and they arrived this morning so it took just over a week for them to arrive.
If you haven't listened to You Me At Six before I really would recommend them. If you like Don Broco, Twin Atlantic or other more recent bands to hit the music scene then give You Me At Six a search on Spotify/iTunes and let me know what you think!
I'll leave you a photo of me looking a bit posey wearing my new hat. Let me know about your favourite bands and other good websites for band merchandise, I'm always after new stuff!
