Bring Me The Horizon – Follow You (Track Of The Day, 17th February)

Nothing says ‘I love you’ like walking through the depths of hell to get to the love of one’s life.

“Cause I’m under your spell
And you can throw me to the flames
I will follow you”

Today’s Track Of The Day is a love song from Bring Me The Horizon. “Follow You” is a track from That’s The Spirit, heavily leaning into light electronics for this typically heavy band. This ode to unconditional (morbid) love is so light that it’s danceable, with more of a rock sound in the choruses.

“Come sink into me and let me breathe you in
I’ll be your gravity, you be my oxygen
So dig two graves cause when you die
I swear I’ll be leaving by your side”

The music video for “Follow You” expresses that unconditional love to the extreme, making the point of how love can make us oblivious to the chaos around us. It portrays a world where anarchy, murder, destruction and zombies have taken over, and follows a character toward his beloved’s (bullet-ridden) house. It’s graphic to the point of humorous ridiculousness. You can view the video HERE.

Enjoy this far more sedate orchestrally supported version from Bring Me The Horizon’s performance at Royal Albert Hall.
