Of “Livin’ Is Easy,” The Embassy’s Torbjörn Håkansson simply says, “This is disco.” Can’t argue with that. Past collaborator Thomas Hämén directs, working trippy visuals evoking New Order’s cover art for Technique and Power, Corruption & Lies. (Though The Embassy might have more in common with frontman Bernard Sumner’s housier group Electronic, when you get down to it.) The Swedish duo’s very-long-awaited Sweet Sensation LP comes out February 26th via their own label, International. Stream the song below too, because it deserves to be heard twice.
