They’re baaaackkkkkkkk!!! You Me At Six have burst back into our ears with a new track called ‘What’s It Like‘ and many of you may be asking that exact question… well to that we say it’s a genre-crossing, rock/EDM influenced song that will raise a few eyebrows.
With elements unused by the band before like Egyptian styled instrumentals), it’s different, but not in a bad way, just in a fresh and unheard of style guaranteed to divide fans at first, but over time, you may find yourself attracted to the alluring new direction they’ve taken.
On the new song frontman Josh Franceschi explains:
“‘What’s It Like’ is us flexing our creative muscles. Combining our favourite genres and bringing them together in one track. For me lyrically, it’s looking at our society in parts in 2019. 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.”
There’s no album news either, just the song so give it a spin and tell us what you think!
