When we caught word that frontman of The Shrine, Josh Landau, was joining forces with longtime friend, collaborator, and skater, Don Nguyen, to start a new band called Easy, we vehemently started scouring the internet for anything: a Bandcamp, a Youtube link, a SoundCloud page. We found nothing. A couple weeks later we got an invite to Landau's monthly music night, Eliminator, at The Monty in Los Angeles. It was there that we got our first taste of the band Easy.
Easy is straight rock and roll, and besides Landau (guitar) and Nuge (bass), includes a pretty impressive lineup with Wilder Zoby on drums, who did production on Run the Jewels 3 amongst various other musical projects, Ben Brown on synth, who has played with Ariel Pink and The Cuts, Jordan Jones on guitar, who has been in the LA music scene for years.
Easy was formed as a way to escape from their other heavier musical outlets and write some fun pop-rock ballads such as their debut single ‘Goodnight’, which they've now released a video for. The new video was shot in the glowing Space Odyssey room at the 14th Factory in Los Angeles, which was a temporary industrial warehouse with over three acres filled with ideas, installations, video, sculpture, paintings, and performance, conceived by British artist Simon Birch.
