Easy Lover - 'The Night We Breathe' EP (album stream) (Premiere)

Brooklyn's Easy Lover is the duo of Jeremy Wimmer and singer Kali Holloway and they create exceptionally atmospheric synth pop led by the Holloway's head-turning vocals.

No, that doesn't mean they sound like Yaz. Easy Lover's sound can be both far sparer and more orchestral in a single song. Multi-instrumentalist Wimmer explains" "We learned that in a duo, you have learn how to construct a song so that the music can feel like it has weight and depth. It took awhile, but with Kali's huge vocals and some experimenting with composition, we ultimately found it." Dig in an enjoy the band's new EP releasing next week and here's hoping a full-length won't be far behind.
