Hooks you like a mainstream band , yet they're underground!
on 18 November 2001
I didn't hear about Easyworld til I had the fortunate thing of seeing them live at The Reading Festival this year, and boy they didn't half stun me. The tune I distinctly remembered was "Junkies and Whores". When I bought the album, I was blown away. There are influences, vocally from Molko to Bellamy. The tunes are whistleable, and at times stray over to the likes of Blur, which are one of their influences. The guitar distortion is at times grungy and transports you back to early Smashing Pumpkins. There is an interesting mix of electronika and rock music, which Soulwax similarly use. Tracks to look out for are "Junkies and Whores" and "Hundredweight", but the whole record is amazing. If you're looking for a vibrant indie/rock band that doesn't talk about misery and death, but intelligent issues, then Easyworld is your band.
