Easy Life release their new 2-track single, ‘who gives a f**k?‘, available now via Interscope Records in the US. Included are a brand new track, “Pop Tarts” as well as an official release of the band’s breakout anthem “Nightmares” – which has already been streamed more than 33 million times, and was recently featured in a pivotal scene on Michaela Coel’s hit HBO series, “I May Destroy You.” The song will be available for the first time physically as part of a 7″ vinyl of ‘who gives a f**k?‘ – available to pre-order now.
Listen to “Pop Tarts” off ‘who gives a f**k?’ HERE.
‘who gives a f**k?’ serves as the follow up to the band’s latest release, ‘see you later maybe never (demos)’ (OUT NOW) which featured two brand new songs created during (and for) lockdown – with DIY live visuals to accompany – ‘peanut butter’ and ‘petty crime’. All this follows an incredible start to Easy Life‘s unpredictable 2020: their debut mixtape, ‘Junk Food‘ (OUT NOW). Having amassed a truly global fanbase, the band’s postponed date at London’s Roundhouse sold out months upfront, with Easy Life’s headline tour and festival run currently being re-routed for 2021.
‘who gives a f**k?‘ speaks to two sides of Easy Life. Blending influences of hip-hop, jazz horns and the band’s innate ear for pop hooks, ‘Nightmares’ is a hugely uplifting but lyrically intimate look at the fragility of mental health (and a young generation, as the lyrics put it, with “everybody on the brink of crisis”). The single’s flip-side, ‘Pop Tarts’, combines quickfire rap and hazy R&B into an off-kilter love song; again showcasing Easy Life’s way with the minutiae and occasional absurdity of everyday life.
