A good band is hard to find, but UK act Easy Life make it, well, not so difficult. Cut from the boisterous BROCKHAMPTON cloth, with a bit of wobble and measure, Easy Life make accessible springtime tunes that lean on the universal truths of youth to hold your attention down to the final inflection. The croons on their latest single, "Ice Cream," are no different, taking you back to each and every parking lot you've logged hours pondering life and laughing with friends. The group has a love for hip-hop, R&B, and the endearing textures of DIY.
"Ice Cream" will deceive you. The track appears to be a bemoaning of lost love, but is more a communal space to recall lost days of summer flings. And the harmonies just sound so good. The vocal breaks and inflections imbue this track with unprecedented personality in an era where any group of friends with a microphone think they've got a classic on their hands. Easy Life have an identity as wistful pop-rockers and "Ice Cream" is their mission statement.
