Marlon Williams is back with 'Easy Does It' - the breezy fourth outing from his upcoming and highly anticipated album My Boy, out on the 9th of September via Dead Oceans.
The song is paired with a visualiser directed by Martin Sagadin and Marlon himself, perfectly encapsulating the song's dreamy, sun-kissed quality; his silky vocals and warm chord pops warming us right up from the ears down.
"I’ve always loved Lee Hazlewood’s personification of "Easy" in his song "Easy and Me"; what a great way of cutting to the point," Williams explains. "It worked for the Greeks, it works for Māori too. I wanted everything about this song to be as gentle as possible. From Delaney Davidson’s lap steel intro with its Pacifica 6th chords to the whispered vocal delivery to the soft summer visualiser which is something of an addendum to the "My Boy" video: the boys, sweaty from the days digging and dancing, launching into the shallows of Lyttelton harbour, hoping to lure some poor sailors to a watery grave."
You can pre-order Marlon Williams' upcoming album My Boy via the Flying Nun Record Shop here - out September 9 via Dead Oceans.
