The two UK sensations team for this new jam.
Easy Life won’t stop. And I don’t want them to. The Leicester boys have spent the last few months playing shows and festivals across the world and releasing an array of amazing tunes like “Earth” and “Houseplants”, as well as their Spaceships Mixtape and the recently released “Nice Guys.” Now they’re back alongside UK’s other big up and coming name, Arlo Parks with “Sangria”. Together, they’re magical, bringing forth a jazzy gem.
Easy Life’s frontman Murray had a bit to say about “Sangria, noting that the song “is about emotional dependency, and missing someone bitterly. 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.”
In addition to the song we got a video and the announcement of a new Easy Life mixtape JUNK FOOD, out January 10th via Interscope Records, right in time to kick off the boys North American tour, which you can see all the dates for below. You can also find “Sangria” from Easy Life and Arlo Parks on our Tasty! Jams playlists.
