Easy Life
Bands come and go, leaving their mark on the industry and in the hearts of their fans, Easy Life, the Leicester five-piece, are the next band to join the ever-growing list as they bid farewell to their name with the release of their final track under the "easy life" banner, "Trust Exercises."

This poignant release marks the end of an era for the band, and it's not just any farewell. They played their instantly-sold-out goodbye show at Koko in London on October 13th, following a heartfelt hometown date at Leicester's O2 Academy the night before. It's a moment that their dedicated fan base will remember for years to come.

"Trust Exercises" is more than just a song; it's a full-circle moment for easy life. Produced alongside the talented FINNEAS and previously previewed during their headline UK tour earlier this year, the track holds a special place in the band's heart. It's one of their oldest and most cherished songs, resonating with the theme of surrounding yourself with good people and treating others with respect.

This release may be time-sensitive, but its musicality is timeless. "Trust Exercises" closes a chapter for the Leicester group, but it also cements their reputation as one of the most important and unstoppable British bands of this generation. Their journey has been nothing short of remarkable.

Since their debut single "Pockets" in 2017, Murray Matravers, Oliver Cassidy, Sam Hewitt, Lewis Berry, and Jordan Birtles have built something truly special. With two albums that both charted at number 2 in the UK charts and a catalogue that oozes ambition and eclecticism, they've paved a new path for UK bands globally.

Even in the midst of a global pandemic, Easy Life managed to connect with their fans in a profound way. They returned to where they belong, performing for thousands of adoring young fans on iconic stages like Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage and London's Alexandra Palace, not to mention arena shows in their native East Midlands. Their journey from the ground up has won them a vast global fanbase and the vocal support of fans, artistic peers, and strangers worldwide. Their work is escapist, uplifting, and quintessentially "easy life."

While their name may be changing, their spirit lives on, and we can't wait to see where their next chapter takes them.

Easy Life's "Trust Exercises" is more than a song; it's a testament to their incredible journey, and it's a must-listen for music enthusiasts of all kinds.

What's next for this group of boys? Who knows?
