You Me At Six drop genre-blending track “What’s It Like”
You Me At Six have dropped their first new song since their 2018 album called “What’s It Like” that shows not everyone is perfect.
The new song fuses an electronic rock sound with a bit of hip-hop influence that definitely puts it in a genre of its own.
“What’s It Like” comes after the band teased they’d be dropping new music soon earlier this week.
The band took to Twitter to share a studio clip that involves the cracking of a can. And no, we’re not joking.The video clip was tweeted with the caption, “NEW MUSIC THIS WEEK.”
Now, the song has finally arrived.
Speaking about the track, frontman Josh Franceschi said it was the band’s way of “flexing (their) creative muscles”.
“Combining our favorite genres and bringing them together in one track. For me lyrically, it’s looking at our society in parts in 2019,” he said. “I definitely feel as though we are living in a time where we’ve lost our way a little bit. There are great innovators and pioneers which we can rely on, but there is also a feeling of the blind leading the blind and a lack of humility present. Within the title and the chorus I sort of poke fun at those who are libertines or self-serving - ‘what’s it like being perfect all the time?’. Life’s not a competition, but people have a tendency to play it out that way.”
