Easy Life, the on-the-rise British band giving you feels of Chance The Rapper’s gospel pop, Arctic Monkeys’ scattergun storytelling, and velvety vibes of vintage Dilla has released a mixtape titled Spaceships to inspire you to believe in the impossible.
The six-track mixtape is quickly taking them to the next level. From track to track, the smooth-moving flows remind us to slow down and take in the day and cherish the people in our lives. Their sounds and stories are personal yet distinctive to each person and their experiences.
Each band member stands with years of experience from being in other bands that helped them run wild with their creativity. It would be difficult to categorize their soulful vocals with the jazz and reggae instrumentals brought to the team, as well as the high energy of hip-hop and fun of soft indie surging through their songs.
“We have really eclectic taste, which means that it ends up sounding a bit weird and I hope that it can’t be pigeonholed too easily for that reason,” frontman Murray said.
Their VEVO DSCVR performance of “Pockets”, a single they describe as a “93 BPM head-nodder born out of the need to give a middle finger to those people who don’t believe in simplicity and are only concerned with material wealth and all other vices,” is effortlessly cool as the guys perform with pure ease and confidence for VEVO.
It’s a feeling we know all too well as they say “it just feels a little bit like / Somebody cut a hole in my pocket / ‘Cause I’ve been trying to do this right / With no profits and the loss, I can’t stop it.” Their lyricism is all too relatable and unique to the average fan, garnering them a large following due to their tunes.
The unique five-piece band is winning the hearts of many adoring fans. They performed in SXSW for the first time in a series of performances before playing around the world – such as their sold-out show last night in New York’s Mercury Lounge and a line of shows in the near future. Catch them in Los Angeles at Coachella, then New York City’s Governor’s Ball then the UK festivals Park Life and The Great Escape, or even on tour starting this March.
Mellow out to the newly released mixtape Starships and keep your eyes peeled for what’s to come from Easy Life.
