Ahead of their January 10 ‘Junk Food’ Mixtape release [Interscope Records], the hotly-tipped Leicester-based band Easy Life have dropped their brand new single and music video, ‘Dead Celebrities.’ Shot in Los Angeles, ‘Dead Celebrities’ is a playful, surreal but also deadly serious look into the world of 21st century fame, arriving just as Easy Life’s own star appears in the ascension. Relocating Leicester’s finest to the Sunshine State – alongside some familiar faces – Easy Life’s ability to handle big themes with a signature lightness of touch is taken to its greatest heights yet on latest project, ‘Junk Food’. Whether tackling the environment (‘Earth’), modern-day heroes and villains (the Trump-skewering ‘Nice Guys’ video) or emotional dependency (‘Sangria’), Easy Life have emerged the year’s most essential new band. And in front-man Murray, the world may have found its next unlikely pop star.
