After their much-loved debut life’s a beach charted at number 2 last year, the band (which also consists of drummer Oliver Cassidy, bassist Sam Hewitt, guitarist Lewis Alexander Berry and keyboardist/percussionist Jordan Birtles) performed a run of sold-out shows including 2 sold out nights at London's O2 Brixton Academy, plus an arena show in their hometown of Leicester. Their gigs were sweaty and carnal, heady and dizzying affairs, with Murray’s shank-sharp observations about the minutiae of modern life cutting through the chaos. But as ‘life’s a beach’ rolled out, and the world fell for easy life’s conceptual love-letter to the gunmetal skies and roughly-hewn coastlines of the British seaside, Murray was grappling with the impact of the pandemic; the lockdowns that were clipping the band’s wings, every time they tried to soar. Like the submerged car bobbing on their debut album artwork, it was hard for easy life to tell whether they would sink or stay afloat.
easy life’s second album, MAYBE IN ANOTHER LIFE…, is a story about silver linings, and making sense of the world – fitting, given the sudden grounding the band experienced amid the global pandemic. “A central theme with us has always been escapism: rather than just say ‘life sucks’ we’re all about celebrating what we have,” explains frontman Murray Matravers. This time, easy life had to put their own ethos to the test – resulting in a heartfelt, melancholic, and uplifting record that will challenge people’s expectations as the band scales euphoric new heights.
An album for unprecedented times, MAYBE IN ANOTHER LIFE… feels like an expertly-realised vision of modern masculinity, identity, and a group of young men figuring out their place in the world. Whether through straight-talking or exuberant world-building, MAYBE IN ANOTHER LIFE… finds joy in the journey, not just the destination. It ends on a note of much-needed clarity, perhaps even hope – once more, easy life offer a lifeline for anyone else keeping their head above the water.
