Lifestyle is a London duo comprised of Lewis Rainsbury, once the frontman of blissed-out band Vondelpark, and Luke Brennan. On their debut mixtape calm fm survival pack vol. 1, they blend just-out-of-reach vocals, propulsive beats, and hazy synth melodies to mesmeric effect, epitomized in the single "NYE," perhaps the most low-key song to ever be recorded with that title. Filmed in Battersea, south London, the surreally colorful video (directed by Jak Payne) follows a figure popping out to the shops for some milk in the borough's familiar streets. "The video's set in our eureka garden," Lifestyle told The FADER in an email. "Sunburnt feelings. Shattered suburban dreams.” Watch above, and listen to the full mixtape here.
