Easy Life Release ‘Sunday’ Music Video

By  | 

Ahead of two back-to-back weekends of US festival performances at Boston Calling and Governors Ball, acclaimed UK five-piece Easy Life returns today with the video for “Sunday,” off their recently released ‘Spaceships’ Mixtape. The new video comes on the heels of their two newly released tracks, “Houseplants” and “Spaghetti Hoops.

The video puts a twist on John Lennon and Yoko’s Bed-ins-For-Peace. The music video features Murray and his romantic interest take that honeymoon-period of early love and lust to the very limits.

Talking about ‘Houseplants’, front-man Murray reveals that the track is “a poetic experiment in which we document the all-consuming feeling of falling head over heels.” Mixing elements of R&B, hip-hop, jazz and distinctly British storytelling, ‘Houseplants’– and the plaintive ‘Spaghetti Hoops’ – further showcases Easy Life’s wry and affecting way with the minutiae of everyday life. The band’s new single arrives as their recent mixtape, ‘Spaceships’, continues to take flight.

With ‘Spaceships’, an ambitious 6-track collection, the band showcases the effortless musicality and intimate storytelling that is truly Easy Life’s own. Following the atmospheric, jazz-infused opener ‘Mercury Retrograde,’ lead track ‘Sunday’ (which premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 Show) is perhaps the band’s soulful moment yet – a gorgeous cut of transatlantic R&B, vividly capturing those halcyon-days of early love (and lust). Elsewhere, Easy Life sharpen their focus on finding those moments of the sublime in the mundane: from the warm but trippy hip-hop of ‘Wet Weekend’ to the mellow haze of ‘Afters’, with observational lyrics which are frequently frank, funny and heartfelt (whether capturing “all these girls at uni, like ‘yeh my daddy’s rich, but no one understands me” to finding someone who makes you feel like “I fall short of who I claim to be / surely there’s someone better than me”). Throughout the tape, Murray also continues to come of age as one of the country’s leading new front-men, and a proper pop-star-in-waiting.
