Hit of the wek: Easy Life ‘Nightmares’

Easy Life, the Leicester five-piece, are having ‘Nightmares’; not literally of course, just the new single, produced by Fraser T Smith (Stormzy, Adele, Florence) and out this week.

The track exudes a confident, charismatic twist on those long days (and nights) when you feel anything but. Blending hip-hop swing, jazzy horns and the band’s innate ear for pop hooks, ‘Nightmares’, says the band’s lead singer, Murray, “started with the trumpet sample that we loved from Dionne Warwick’s version of Burt Bacharach’s ‘Loneliness Remembers What Happiness Forgets’. This instantly gave us the feels, and the rest just kind of fell into place.”

Natalie Prass, la gran nova veu

Un dels discos de l’any és culpa d’aquesta nord-americana de Richmond, Virginia i resident a Nashville. Co-produït i editat al segell del seu barbut amic Matthew E. White, ‘Natalie Prass’ (2015) és un clàssic modern ple de cançons de pop plenes de lletres sobre pors, desamors i inseguretats que Prass entona amb la seva delicada veu. Amb el primer tall, la punyent ‘My baby don’t understand me’ ja ho diu tot. Una barreja moderna de grans reines del pop com Dionne Warwick, Dusty Springfield o Dolly Parton. Natalie Prass serà aquest dimecres 26 d’agost a la sala Sidecar.
