Now, I’m not normally an avid watcher of the Official Charts as popularity does not ultimately result in good music all the time. This is clear from the evident trawls of music the Charts has splurged out over the years.
But, my ears perked up when the local Leicester lads of Easy Life’s debut, Life’s a Beach is giving Olivia Rodrigo’s album, SOUR, a run for its money. An album that has taken the world by storm with its glossy but gritty angst to love with consecutive weeks in global sales, could Olivia be toppled from the spot in glorious fashion with one of my avid favourites of Easy Life?
Their debut delivered great expectations and has risen in fantastic pleasure for all fellow musicians who revolve around the East Midlands.
So, I implore you gorgeous lot to buy it, stream it, share it – do whatever we need to do to get their deserved number one spot. It’ll certainly be a hard feat as I imagine Olivia has a greater international pull than the boys from Leicester …
but still … this is the music industry – anything’s possible!
