It’s common to describe a song or a sound as a certain type of vehicle. After all, music is movement and it’s easy to get lost in the good songs and get transported by the great ones. But there’s something that makes you want to jump on the riff of the Easy Reasons’ debut single “Piece” — and let it take you wherever the fuck it wants.
The foursome — comprised of Leesa Coyne (Naked On Roller Skates) on vocals/guitar, Pete Zeigler (The Rationales) on guitar, Lisa Libera (Muy Cansado) on bass/vocals, and Will Davies (Kingsley Flood) on drums/vocals — made their live debut back in June, but now have some recorded gems to shine around town. And this one has some sweet authority to it.
Recorded with Pete Weiss at Armory Sound in Somerville, the Easy Reasons’ debut is a promising one: anthemic ’70s grooves, Coyne’s hypnotically commanding vocals, and thick guitar work that slithers and slides under the threat of only the worst of intentions in the best of times. Rock and roll, motherfuckers.
