Leicester band Easy Life and American singer-songwriter Gus Dapperton have shared their icy collaboration, “ANTIFREEZE.” The track provides yet another peek at the group’s second studio album, Maybe In Another Life.
Written during lockdown by Easy Life frontman Murray Matravers and indie pop darling Gus Dapperton, “ANTIFREEZE” is a brilliant meeting of the minds. The duo found common emotional ground—in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, nonetheless—and delivered an instant classic. Its melancholic storytelling is complemented by gratifying harmonies and a chorus that’ll be stuck in your head for days.

“ANTIFREEZE” was released alongside an official music video that was filmed in New York during Easy Life’s sold out U.S. tour. “It’s inspired by the winter and all its icy emotions,” said Matravers on social media. “We shot the video together on the coldest day I can remember.” The visuals expand our view of the vibrant world the UK group is building with Maybe In Another Life.
The band began teasing their new album earlier this year with its first single, “BEESWAX”. This was followed by the anthemic “DEAR MISS HOLLOWAY,” which features Kevin Abstract, and their summer single “OTT” featuring New Zealand pop star BENEE.
Maybe In Another Life drops on October 7. You can watch the (very trippy) music video for “ANTIFREEZE” below.
