Rock band You Me At Six have released Our House (The Mess We Made), a new single with the proceeds being donated to the WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue Association.
Frontman Josh Franceschi said the track was written after the band had met with a geologist who informed them of the ongoing impact of climate change: “We were inspired to address the issue of climate change, but equally by the hope that the youth have given me,” Franceschi said. “Never in my life have I seen a younger generation take to the streets to have their voices heard than on this subject. They want change, they want their futures back because our house is on fire, and we must act now.
“Seeing footage of what has been happening in Australia, we felt compelled to do something to help those who are in need, both humans and wildlife. It’s for that reason we are using the most powerful tool at our disposal to help, music.”
The recent Australian bushfires have seen several musical artists support relief causes, such as Tame Impala, Angie McMahon, Gordi, Delta Goodrem and The Gooch Palms.
