“’What’s It Like’ is us flexing our creative muscles,” Josh Franceschi says. “Lyrically, it’s looking at our society in parts in 2019. I 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.”
