British quartet The Big Moon have released “It’s Easy Then,” their first single in over two years.
The band ditch their indie rock roots on the track, trading guitars for a lush, keyboard-led soundscape that features bubbly synths. “I’m so bored of being capable / I need somewhere to be vulnerable / I take everything straight to the heart / I just wanna rewind to the start,” frontwoman Jules Jackson sings on the opening verse.
“‘It’s Easy Then’ is really just about how life feels very complicated these days,” Jackson explained to NME. “I don’t feel like I can just write love songs anymore. I feel like life has got bigger and weirder. We’re living through strange times. We worry too much, we know too much, we feel like we need to explain everything and the news just stokes up all of our anxieties. Life is one big panic attack.”
“It’s Easy Then” is the first taste of the band’s forthcoming sophomore album. The band made their debut in 2017 with Love in the 4th Dimension. Listen to their new single here:
