easy life have today dropped brand new track “Dear Miss Holloway”, featuring Kevin Abstract. easy life have also confirmed details of a brand new album, Maybe In Another Life, available August 12th. The album follows the band’s debut album life’s a beach.

The collaboration between the Brockhampton front-man and the UK quintet, “Dear Miss Holloway” is a West Coast ode to a love that wasn’t meant to be (Murray wrote it about a passing crush on a teacher: “maybe in another life, we could try to roll the dice, and get it right’”). The guys first connected over DM, before Murray and Kevin met in Los Angeles and started playing each other their upcoming music. Abstract asked to cut a verse right there and then, resulting in a track that became – says Murray – “the cornerstone of the second easy life album” [the chorus also contains the album title]. “Kevin raps about expectations versus reality, choice and regret. Thematically, ‘DEAR MISS HOLLOWAY’ opened up this whole world, and the desire for us as a band to create a world that was better than the one we inhabited at the time.”

In 2022, easy life – an escapist band, formed on the hedonistic outlook of ‘no regrets’ – appear compelled to put their ethos to the test. An idea birthed by “Dear Miss Holloway”, Maybe in Another Life… became this record about how our choices define us, for better and worse, and a way to make peace with things we can’t control. What’s emerged is an expertly-realised vision of masculinity, which encourages us – whether via opening up, or exuberant world-building – to find joy in the journey, not just the destination.
