Following the release of their latest single ‘Nice Guys,’ British five-piece Easy Life are serving the masses yet another fine gem, this time a collaboration with London poet and singer Arlo Parks. ‘Sangria’ (Ft. Arlo Parks)’ is out today and comes with an official music video and news of their forthcoming ‘Junk Food’ Mixtape (Interscope Records), out on January 17, 2020 [PRE-ORDER], ahead of their North American headlining Junk Food tour which starts on February 27.
‘Sangria’ unites two of the most exciting acts breaking out of the UK right now in a brooding blend of soulful hip-hop, smooth R&B, and disarmingly confessional pop.

Lyrically, ‘Sangria’—says Easy Life front-man Murray—”is about emotional dependency, and missing someone bitterly. Even though sometimes the triggers that remind you of someone aren’t always healthy, these are often still the most potent and desirable. It’s a love song in its rawest form yet contains undertones of something slightly sinister. Arlo is able to express this delicate paradox with me and she is the only person I can imagine sharing this sentiment with so perfectly.”
Arlo adds “I was a massive fan of the Easy Life boys – they had this groove and this energy that was really refreshing. We kept just missing each other at festivals and chatting over Instagram then Murray popped a demo over to me – as soon as I heard that hip-hop reminiscent beat with that buttery flow I was obsessed. At first I recorded my verse on this £30 mic I have in my bedroom – I wanted to convey that wistfulness of puppy love and the frustration of never having the person you’re obsessed with around. They’re such lovely boys and I feel blessed to be part of such a sentimental, cute tune.”
