You Me At Six & Chiddy - Rescue Me

You Me At Six have reached across the pond to recruit Chiddy, of Chiddy Bang, for their newest single, "Rescue Me".  The English band and American rapper are the latest match-up for the "rap rock" style single destined for the radio charts.  In recent months, we've heard B.o.B team up with Hayley Williams for the highly successful "Airplanes".  "Rescue Me" is actually pretty similar to the hit song that soared to the top of the charts around the world.  It starts with the chorus, supplied by You Me At Six, over a piano.  The verses are then made up of Chiddy's rapping.  The song continues in this back and forth pattern.  The result is a perfectly catchy single that may be You Me At Six's key to mainstream success in the US.  The song really isn't anything groundbreaking as a whole, though.  It's a drastic change in style for the band, but the song itself has been done in many different forms over the years.  That doesn't make it any less enjoyable, but that lack of a certain flair may hold "Rescue Me" back from taking off completely.

If you enjoy You Me At Six's usual pop-punk music, then brace yourself for a major shift in style when you watch the video for "Rescue Me" after the jump...
