Spurts Navigate Their Frustrations with the Music Industry on “Easy For You”

An anthemic slacker rock tune about achieving success in a cutthroat society

Spurts have just released their new single “Easy For You,” delivered via Lava Socks Records, the new track is an anthemic slacker rock tune about achieving success in a cutthroat society. Recorded in Spurts’ brainchild and vocalist Robert Sanlis’ bedroom in Livermore, CA, the new track gives off major surfer rock vibes.

Perfectly encapsulating the frustrations of “making it big” in the music industry, “Easy For You” incorporates a sonic mesh of 90’s lo-fi with a dash of modern indie for good measure. Written as a way to cast cynicism in a realistic light, the new track is a must listen for fans of Yo La Tengo, Pavement, and Of Montreal. The new track was written and recorded in March and April of 2023 with the help of producer Dustin Hayes (Walter Mitty and His Makeshift Orchestra).

When speaking about the inspiration behind “Easy For You”, Robert Sanlis of Spurts writes:

“Lyrically, the song was inspired by the feeling of frustration over receiving conflicting advice from various Youtube celebrities about how to “make it” in the music industry.”

Racing out of Oakland, CA, Spurts is the sentimental slacker rock group composed of hometown friends Robert Sanlis (guitar / vocals), Nathan Graves (keys), Chris Schubert (bass) and Jack Kovacich (drums). With their DIY recordings and energetic live performances, Spurts deliver music that embodies listening to a playlist full of forgotten 90’s bangers. Though their tracks have a glaze of nostalgia imprinted in them, the four-piece offer a cynical, yet self-aware take on indie rock that is explored further on their forthcoming LP That Was Mean And I’m Sorry.
