Easy Life have delivered a brand new track.
Titled ‘Sangria’, it features fellow buzz-act Arlo Parks, and is a taster of a forthcoming mixtape, ‘Junk Food’, which is set to arrive on Island Records on 17th January 2020.
“Lyrically, ‘Sangria’ is about emotional dependency, and missing someone bitterly,” explains Easy Life front-man Murray. “Even though sometimes the triggers that remind you of someone aren’t always healthy, these are often still the most potent and desirable. It’s a love song in its rawest form yet contains undertones of something slightly sinister. Arlo is able to express this delicate paradox with me and she is the only person I can imagine sharing this sentiment with so perfectly.”
Arlo adds “I was a massive fan of the Easy Life boys – they had this groove and this energy that was really refreshing. We kept just missing each other at festivals and chatting over Instagram then Murray popped a demo over to me – as soon as I heard that hip-hop reminiscent beat with that buttery flow I was obsessed. At first I recorded my verse on this £30 mic I have in my bedroom – I wanted to convey that wistfulness of puppy love and the frustration of never having the person you’re obsessed with around. They’re such lovely boys and I feel blessed to be part of such a sentimental, cute tune.”
