The sensual immediacy at the heart of “Easy,” taken from the album Lanterns, is astutely captured by director David Terry Fine in the song’s respective clip. Shot in striking black-and-white, with the absence of color giving way to patches of darkness which only heighten the tension of the slow pulse of “Easy,” Fine’s touch is a complementary one.
Incorporating elements of bondage and painful bursts of age-driven nostalgia, “Easy” is (almost!) the story of someone realizing that nostalgia is a dangerous act of placing past events on a pedestal (even if that means tying them up for such a display), and that such a view is profoundly jaundiced. The internal existential ponderings (and impending personal exploration) showcased in “Easy” add a new dimension to the Son Lux spectrum – one of erratic but mature introspection. Pair this viewing with a rewatch of their equally remarkable clip for “Lantern’s Lit.”
