13 OCTOBER 2023 (TORONTO, ON) – easy life have today dropped new track "Trust Exercises", which is available now on Island Records and marks the Leicester five-piece’s final release under the easy life name. The group play an instantly-sold-out farewell London show at Koko tonight (October 13th), following a farewell hometown date at Leicester’s O2 Academy last night.
Produced alongside FINNEAS and previewed with unexpected poignancy on their headline UK tour earlier this year, "Trust Exercises" is in many ways a full-circle moment for easy life. It is, in fact, one of the trailblazing band’s oldest and most cherished songs, inspired by surrounding yourself with good people and treating others with respect. Time-sensitive in release but timeless in musicality, "Trust Exercises" closes one chapter for the Leicester group whilst cementing its reputation as one of this generation’s most important (and unstoppable) British bands.
Since 2017’s debut single "Pockets", Murray Matravers, Oliver Cassidy, Sam Hewitt, Lewis Berry and Jordan Birtles have built something special. Their ambitious and eclectic catalogue to date scales two albums (both of which charted at number 2 in the UK charts) and more furiously-prolific work from a group of young men unassumingly treading a new path for UK bands around the world. Along the way, Murray has grown in confidence as a producer, songwriter and front-man, delivering an experience always marked by sharp visuals, good humour and lyrical candour. Despite conceiving and releasing albums in the extraordinary circumstances of a global pandemic, the last year or so has seen the band back where they belong; playing to thousands of adoring young fans, from iconic stages like Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage or London’s Alexandra Palace to arena shows in their native East Midlands. From the ground up, the band have won a vast global fanbase - and more recently, the vocal support fans, artistic peers, and strangers around the world - with work that is escapist, uplifting, and quintessentially easy life.
From conception to the present day, whatever life has thrown at them, easy life have always moved forward. Read Murray’s letter to fans in full on the band’s official website now.
