hard life (AKA easy life) return hopeful with 'tears'

More in line with reality, easy life is now hard life. Following the legal dispute that occurred at the end of last year with easyGroup, owners of the British airline brand easyJet, those formerly known as Easy Life have been able to move forward and release their comeback single, 'tears'. It's our Song of the Day.

'Tears' is an emotional hip hop song, very Kanye-like in the treatment of the vocal sample (“If I ever get to see you again”). According to the band themselves, the song is a new chapter in their history and they do not leave aside what happened with easyJet. In fact, they are quite expensive. “It's a hard life, I can't lie, it's been a mess / But I'm lucky to have trustworthy friends,” Murray Matravers raps in the chorus.

Matravers constantly refers to the unfair dispute with easyGroup, and goes so far as to name the owner of the entire company, Stelios Haji-Ioannou. “It was easy in my twenties, now I have to get lawyers / Give me airline miles or a fair trial Stelios,” Matravers sings. This phrase is censored on Spotify after easyGroup considered it “defamatory.”

The British artist also leaves room to reflect on the worst outcome that the legal dispute could have had: dissolving. “I've seen artists come and go, I got survivor syndrome,” Matravers raps.
