Easy Life have raised excitement levels for their forthcoming debut album with their shimmering new single, ‘Skeletons’.
The latest swaggering track follows the recent teaser, ‘A Message To Myself’, as the Leicestershire natives step closer to releasing their highly-anticipated debut, Life’s A Beach, on June 5th through Island Records. If Easy Life’s vast repertoire of tracks that they’ve released over the last few years have created immense interest in their debut. If the first two singles are anything to go by then, it’s hard not to imagine Life’s A Beach on heavy rotation essential all summer.
Previously commenting on the album, singer Murray Matravers said: “It’s a record that wishes it was anywhere else but here. Yet at the same time fixates on a dreary middle England existence.”
‘Skeletons’ is an emotional track filled with anticipation about starting a new journey with somebody, along with the trepidation that it’s all going to end in tears. Matravers’ has a special skill that allows him to weave between spoken word delivery throughout the verses, then showing off the full range of his cajoling vocal abilities on the chorus just a moment later.
“Skeletons’ plays with the idea of a slightly mysterious and potentially terrifying past,” Matravers explains. “Everyone has baggage and everyone has skeletons. Falling head over heels with somebody who may be bad news, we’ve all been there.”
Everything that Easy Life do is soaked in youthfulness, and they stay true to that sentiment on the infectious ‘Skeletons’. The track feels like a progression for the band from a production standpoint and feels bigger, more anthemic than their previous work.
While their talent was evident from the start, Easy Life have managed to show their growth on ‘Skeletons’, which is the most confident-sounding track they’ve released to date. Viva Easy Life!
