Yaeji has released a new single and video for ‘Easy Breezy’.
Yaeji has followed up her With A Hammer album from earlier this year with a new single on XL Recordings, released to coincide with the European leg of her album tour.
‘Easy Breezy’ indeed has a breezy light Bossa nova pop feel to it, drawing influence from the Japanese and Korean music she grew up listening to.
““easy breezy” feels like a sequel that weaves a thread through my past releases (and my past selves).
Sonically, the song connects a thread between me now and me back in middle school —when I discovered bossa nova, drum and bass, and house through Korean and Japanese pop electronica. “easy breezy” is a thread, a tribute, a recollection of memories, and an encouraging push for us to bring forth change with courage and laughter. we hold the power in our hands, and we should never doubt that. Change is now.”
The video features Yaeji on a scooter with with her dog Jiji, dodging banana skins and obstacles in a Mario Kart-style fashion.
The track is on Bandcamp.
