Experimental trip-hop group Closegood’s Instagram bio says they make “sad music you can dance to,” but the transgender duo’s latest offering, “Easy,” has an uplifting message.
“‘Easy’ is about recognizing that just because people may not put in the effort or care into loving you the way you need to be loved, does not mean you are too difficult to love,” says the group’s songwriter Nyfe.
The pair’s producer half, Amada, adds that the song “serves as a reminder to let the people I love know how much joy and light they bring into my life as often as I can. Having the reassurance that you are not hard to care for can be really powerful.”
The visual for “Easy,” premiering Wednesday (Feb. 6), matches the warm, youthful vibe of the track with scenes of the duo, both 22, splashing in a pool and swinging on a playground. With Valentine’s Day approaching, Closegood has released QR-coded cards that boldly state, “you are so easy to love.”
