Single Review – Johnny Marr – Easy Money

Johnny Marr is back in 2014 to follow up on his debut solo album The Messenger which was released last year with Playland and it’s out on October 6th. ‘Easy Money’ is the current single to be unveiled from the album and gives way to some of his ideas. You immediately grasp the greater sense of emphasis on hooks, rhythmic feel and lyrical flair as opposed to the reflective and contemplative nature of last year’s album. The trademark Marr-guitar is backed up with the sharp beat of the percussion, the grinding distortion of the rhythm, with the lead trickling from it. Along with the heavy electronica, it is an track of combination. Connecting the British Indie sound he helped forge with hints of euro-rock and pop, which is filled together nicely by Marr’s slightly echoed back vocals that sweep across the instrumentals. This track revives the old adage of a fine wine getting better with age and it’s one that certainly applies to Marr at the moment.
