I’ll be honest: I’m a sucker for anything featuring moody drums, dark, jazzy, caberet-inspired piano, and hushed, monotone vocals, and Doctrs delivers it perfectly with “Easy Go.” The effect the collaboration between Josh Campos and Sean Bloom has on my mood is visceral; I want to paint on red lipstick, through on my favorite leather jacket, and light up a cigarette in the doorway of some dive bar, staring out into the rain and daring the world to ask me how I’m doing.
“I want you, me, and this home
Easy come, easy stay, easy go.”
It’s like the drama of The Great Gatsby meets the raw, psychedelic sex appeal of Jim Morrison and The Doors with a touch of the trippy IDGAF attitude of The xx. The result is the kind of song you can’t help but play on repeat. Stream
