Easy Life have shared their new track ‘Daydreams’ which reimagines Aretha Franklin song ‘Daydreaming’ and oozes beauty straight out the gates, epitomising everything that has made this Leicester group one of the most highly anticipated British acts to have emerged in the last couple of years.
‘Daydreams’ provides yet another taste of their finished debut album which is still yet to be announced and follows on from where January’s Junk Food mixtape left off. The track sees Murray Matravers battle the overthinking that comes along with having too much time on your hands and looking back over every little minutia of life in the most excessive of details. ‘Daydreams’ has also seen the group partner up with acclaimed producer Fraser T. Smith as well as Rob Milton on the track.
The track provides another glimpse of the unique sound that Easy Life is carving out for themselves, one which has seen them expand their fanbase immensely over 2020. Matravers has mastered the art of writing intimate lyrics that feel both intimate and relatable plus he gets bonus points for shoehorning ‘Berocca’ into ‘Daydreams‘ which is more than greatly produced.
“Like most of us, I’ve spent the whole year sat at home daydreaming about a possible alternate reality,” Matravers said on the track. “Born out of boredom and idleness, ‘Daydreams’ is as much about getting drunk as it is about falling in and out of love,” he added.
This is the group’s first release by the band since their two-track single featuring ‘Nightmares’ and ‘Pop Tarts’ titled who gives a fuck? which was released in July and saw the band show off their repertoire of blending their loves of jazz, hip-hop and melody altogether which they have continued to master on ‘Daydreams’.
Take a listen to the track below which is another delicious jazz-influenced offering from the band.
