Veteran Toronto rockers the Sadies have been doing their thing since 1994, and they’ve worked with some great artists over their two-decade-plus career. One such artist is Kurt Vile, who supported the Sadies on an early tour in the ’90s. Vile and the band have come full circle on “It’s Easy (Like Walking),” a new single from the Sadies’ forthcoming album, Northern Passages, due early next year. The Philly rocker handles vocal duties on a bed of psychedelic folk that blends jangly guitar and bright keys that brim with a subdued but potent energy. Here’s what the Sadies’ Dallas Goode had to say about how the song came together:
Kurt did a tour supporting The Sadies about a thousand years ago. We didn’t really know each other before that but we’ve been friends ever since. We always talked about collaborating one day so I forced his hand by sending him this finished song with a very short deadline attached. He delivered, as he always seems to do.
