This is Empires "Night Is Young", track 4 from their record 'Garage Hymns'.

I apologise if not all of this tab makes sense, but they use some embellishments

which are hard for me to make out! If you get stuck you can see it's in E/C#m, so

you can try and fill in the gaps yourselves. You can also take what you can from

C#m/G# - Just a C#m chord, but you extend the barre to include the G# on the E string as well.

   E5* (Technically Asus2)  E5II (Variant of previous chord)
