  • Featured Video: Cody Simpson "Livin' Easy"

    Tue, 14 Jul 2015 09:19:06

    Watch the video for the summery song from our Artist of the Week.

    Pop music's golden boy Cody Simpson—he of the flaxen hair and that cutely crooked smile—is this week's Artist of the Week. To celebrate that status, why not watch his video for "Livin' Easy," which is a super summery track?

    Cody Simpson is like Bob Marley—don't snicker, hear us out!—in that it could be mid-January in a bitter cold climate, with a few feet of snow on the ground... but when you turn on his music, you are instantly transported to a beach or island paradise. Listen to "Livin' Easy" and you will trick yourself into thinking you are lounging next to some clear blue body of water, feet burrowed in the sand, while in a bathing suit, flip flops and shades, while slathered with a whole lot of sunblock.

    Simpson mixes John Mayer-like modern blues and Jack Johnson's laid back aesthetic with pop and reggae. But Simpson isn't cribbing from anyone else's playbook. He has come up with his own custom blend of pop music that always feels so, so good. Kinda like the sun's rays on your face in July.

    Watch the video for "Livin' Easy" and allow yourself to be instantly transported to summer... no matter where you are. Directed by Tucker Tripp.
