Simple Life

Somewhere on a dusty road, most likely in a Quentin Tarantino film, “Simple Life” echoes throughout a sweeping view of a desolate desert and a classic American car speeding down the sun-soaked pavement.

Ok, maybe we took things a little far there with the storytelling, but it’s not hard to do when listening to this song from this brand new artist. Yes, while it may seem like NYC-based Imaginary People have been playing for decades, what with their highly engaging and infectious sound, but their debut album release hasn’t even happened yet. In fact, this is our first look at it.

There’s something we just can’t put our finger on with “Simple Life.” There’s a certain reminiscence of Americana that’s undeniably memorable. Maybe it’s the vibrato-rich vocals from front man Dylan Von Wagner. Maybe it’s the hazy, heavily distorted guitar work. Maybe it’s the arrangement. Whatever it is, it feels familiar, and it feels like we want to keep listening over and over again.
