After self-releasing their eponymous debut EP in July of last year, Easy Lover have returned with new single 'The Sweet'.

The biggest individual release from their 2012 EP, 'New Maggie', seems to have been built upon, with Easy Lover's sound becoming more refined and dreamier as each release passes. There is still a that presence of reverb-soaked guitars that featured on their debut release, but the production is far cleaner this time and allows Easy Lover’s most synthetic release yet to blossom in its own beauty.

A Poliça-esque bass pattern adds a touch of warmth to the majestic, breezy and tropical synth pattern that evokes the sound of a vibraphone. Kali Holloway's voice is stronger than before, too, occasionally supported by multi-tracked choral effects to add size to the track with a kind touch. The aforementioned reverb-soaked guitars return in a not too dissimilar fashion to an early release from The Jesus & Mary Chain but the production keeps 'The Sweet' just as luscious as its name suggests, and moves Easy Lover briefly in to post-rock territory with its peripheral positioning.

'The Sweet' is taken from Easy Lover's second EP The Night We Breathe and can be heard below.
