Ellie Goulding Releases the Four Tet Remix of “Easy Lover”
Love in all it’s forms and seasons has its ups and downs. It’s a roller coaster so dizzying that it will rip your heart out and back in your chest simultaneously. Daunting yes, but it’s an addicting feeling much like biting into dark chocolate. It’s bitter, sweet, sinful and satisfying all in one morsel. One thing that it isn’t though is easy because you give away a part of you. Something that you can’t take anymore, even if you wanted to. Far more complex than preparing instant coffee, and far more soothing than a cup of noodles.
This is why when songs like “Easy Lover” by Phil Collins and Phillip Bailey, and now with Ellie Goulding “Easy Lover Four Tet Remix”, we all can’t help but be intrigued by it. A swerve from the norm, it confuses and entices the senses like a temptress at sea. Asking whether you too would like to search for your very own “easy lover”. Taking that leap of faith and discovering what’s at the end of it all. Will it be the person of your dreams, or heartache?
Sure it may have that label of remix, but it’s a high quality one that’s good enough to stand on its own two feet. It’s got it’s own mystique, charm and magic that’ll get your hands and ears clapping. Released August 19th via Interscope Records, Ellie Goulding’s “Easy Lover Four Tet Remix” is a cocktail of longing set to an addictive danceable beat. Setting the spotlight on a crazed lover who’s fallen head over heels for a man who still wants to play around. It’s a vicious game of tug of war, each side fighting for their own wants. Despite all the chasing being done all through the tune, it comes to a screeching halt and comes to the bleak realization that “Everything that’s easy ain’t worth it Everything that’s worth it ain’t gon’ be easy”. It’s an admittance that having an “easy lover” is merely a mirage in the desert of despair.
