PRESS TO MECO RELEASE NEW TRACK AND VIDEO
Following its premiere on Kerrang! Radio, Fresh Blood With Alex Baker and their intimate launch show at the Gibson Guitar Showroom in London, Press to MECO are excited to share their explosive new single ‘Easy Life’, out now on Marshall Records.
LISTEN BACK HERE
Recorded and produced by Richard Craker (DAGNY, Liam Gallagher) and mixed by Shane Edwards (Trophy Eyes, The Libertines), ‘Easy Life’ is the culmination of the Press to MECO’s collective frustrations navigating the turbulent world of the music industry, while having the guts and artistic integrity to stick it out and stay true to yourself.
"'Easy Life' was the first song we’d written after the ‘Here’s To The Fatigue’ album, at a pretty low point for all of us. The song talks about becoming disillusioned with the dream you’re pursuing and second-guessing the path you’re on. I liked the idea of comparing the dream to a bad relationship which you know you should give up on, but can’t bring yourself to leave. Obviously, working in the music industry comes with a lot of self-doubt and stress about whether you’ll become successful or not. This song was a good opportunity to vent about this and describe how these feelings can get to you after some time. That being said, 'Easy Life' is one of my favourite things we’ve written to date and serves as a good reminder of how fulfilling writing and performing your own music can be. We worked with our talented friend Richard Craker as the producer who we also worked with on the acoustic EP released earlier this year. It’s a great creative relationship we have with him and one we’re hoping to build on in the future."
