Easy Life Announce & Release New EP
Today Easy Life have joined the ranks of other artists who announce and drop a release on the same day by releasing their UNFD debut, There Can't Be This Much Water In The Sky ahead of their Yours and Owls main stage debut this weekend.
The boys manage to capture small town living, drawing on their own experiences of living in Shellharbour, NSW and the anxieties and emotions that come from living in a regional coastal town. They even taken us on a tour of their home in the video for 'Light Me Up'. The four tracks on their EP address the limbo between youth and adulthood where, for many, it's when they're first introduced to grief and pain.
“I was in a tough place in my life at the start of last year,“ says frontman Max Pasalic. “The anxiety and everything that comes with it not only destroyed me but I exploded and had a bit of a meltdown and the story arc of the record is a different stage of that and how I was feeling.” There Can’t Be This Much Water In The Sky begins with self-destruction, then acceptance, understanding and finally rejection, set to melancholy yet triumphant music. Their sound is familiar, and can be likened to acts such as Bring Me The Horizon, Citizen and Basement.
“Growing up in a small town, there’s not a lot of opportunity,” continues Pasalic. “The trajectory for a lot of kids is either you go to year 10, you get a trade and that’s your life or you go to year 12, get a university degree and move to Sydney and that’s your life. I can sit in my town and live a simple life for myself, or I can choose the left-hand path and take the next step.”
There Can't Be This Much Water In The Sky is out now via UNFD. You can grab it here.
