Troye Sivan is a South African-born, Australian singer-songwriter, actor and YouTuber with a series of singles, albums, EPs, movies and vlogs under his belt.

This particular version of the song, ‘Easy’, is a remix of his original track, and was released in December 2020. It features vocals from American singer-songwriter, Kacey Musgraves and production from British musician and producer Mark Ronson. In fact, Musgraves actually co-wrote and performed a new verse specially for the song, whilst Ronson added a really cool disco-pop vibe to the track.

The song is catchy as hell and the perfect song for Tuneful Tuesday, as I’ve had it on repeat for days!

The music video for the track is pretty awesome too – featuring both Sivan and Musgraves as two people on the run, driving vintage cars, dyeing their hair and perfoming in a motel room as well as going to over-the-top drag shows and dancing the night away. It’s a must-watch!

#TunefulTuesday: Pale Waves – ‘Easy’

Pale Waves are an English, indie rock/pop band from Manchester, who formed in 2014. To date, the quartet have released an EP and their debut album, My Mind Makes Noises (through Dirty Hit) and are currently gearing up to release their sophomore album, Who Am I?

‘Easy’ is a melodic, dream pop anthem taken from their upcoming second album, and is a track that is just crying out to be sung along to.

It’s actually got a certain, 2002 Avril Lavigne feel to it, somewhere along the lines of Complicated‘Anything But Ordinary’ and ‘Things I’ll Never Say’ but with a more modern twist to it.

The music video is pretty cool too with its juxtaposed imagery, seeing the band rocking goth-like appearances, whilst performing amongst twinkling lights – it’s beautifully shot and makes for a really interesting watch. Check it out below.

If this song and the others they have released so far from their second record are anything to go by, then it promises to be a very exciting release!

#MellowMonday: Chris Malinchak – ‘So Good To Me’

Chris-Malinchak-banner

Although it was released back in 2013, it was only recently that I discovered this song and it has everything I want in a mellow track right now – echoing synths, gentle vocals, simplicity and an evocative atmosphere. To bring it to life, the song features samples from ‘If This World Were Mine’ by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. Not only is the song itself fantastic, but the video is pretty great too!

I can’t get enough of this song right now! I hope you enjoy it too!

How’s everyone else’s Mellow Monday? What are you listening to, to ease you into the week?
