Hovvdy – “Easy”

Earlier this year, Hovvdy released their sophomore album, Cranberry, and this fall the Austin duo will become the latest musicians to participate in Saddle Creek Records’ Document Series, which aims to highlight local music scenes from around the country and world. Hovvdy have recorded two new songs for the series, and the first one, “Easy,” is being released today.

“Easy” continues on in Hovvdy’s tradition of making the smallest things feel immaculate, with ornately sleepy instrumentation that comes across like one long sigh. It’s about nightmares, but feels like a pleasant dream. “You wake up with the lamp on/ Brighten the dark blue wall,” Charlie Martin sings. “You sink/ Back into a sleep/ You’re suffering another dream/ And waking up right there, on the floor, safe right there after all.”
