The latest song from Winnipeg's Amos the Kid sounds like it was written to perfectly appeal to If It's Too Loud... "You Make It So Easy" fits into the modern folk-ish/Americana movement that we cover a lot, but it's hardly a pure, straightforward folk song. His vocals have a very distinct 90's indie rock slacker feel to them. And then there's what sounds like a steel guitar adding feedback. It's a truly unique sound that incorporates some of our favorite genres all together. Towards the end of "You Make It So Easy" it turns into an epic indie rock song that never would have flown in the 90's. It's always great to hear an artist take a well trod genre (or two) and tweak it just enough to make a new sound.
Amos the Kid says of the new song:
"'You Make It So Easy' is a feel-good song. It's a look at the things I took comfort in amidst a very different summer. Something that kept me going was daily walks, trying to find the sun. This particular song takes place at a little park near my home. Myself and the person I love would walk there and lay in the grass and talk it out, laughing and drinking cheap wine."
