SINGLE REVIEW: Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy by Jelly Oshen

Australian indie-pop music artist Jelly Oshen is about to release another exceptionally cool new track, Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. The latest release follows the success of Cigarettes, which has helped Jelly clock up more than a quarter of a million plays on Spotify so far. The track features Jelly’s trademark chilled, upbeat quirkiness and takes you away on a tropical island holiday, swaying in a hammock and sipping on a mocktail in the shade of a palm tree (or maybe a lemon tree!). Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy was produced by long-time collaborator DubKlaat and mixed by 6x Grammy winner James ‘Bonzai’ Caruso. The new release is the sixth single for the young singer-songwriter. It is sure to repeat the success of his previous releases, which received extensive nationwide airplay, including Triple J (Aus), Double J (Aus), 4ZZZ (Brisbane), Coast FM (Cairns), Triple R (Melbourne) and a host of others. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy skilfully brings together many of the elements of Jelly’s previous tracks in what sounds like a more natural, easy-going form; laid back rhythms augmented by subtle textural touches and melodic inventions that soothe and placate rather than saturate. Jelly tells us a bit about the track, ‘I wrote this song about how a lot of people think dating or loving someone is a big, complicated fantasy world like Lord Of The Rings where everything needs to be perfectly good and bad, but really it’s just two people finding each other and are willing to change for another cause if you already know who you are, it’s really easy to change for someone you love’. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy fuses a contemporary RnB groove with Jelly’s indelible idiosyncratic sensibilities to create a breezy, irresistible pop track.  Catch Jelly Oshen live in Cairns at the Tanks Art Centre on May 21 alongside Ben Lee and at the Fresh Produce Festival in Townsville on Friday, August 13, with more dates to be announced soon.
