Watch King Krule Take It 'Easy Easy' in His Dad's Suit

Young Londoner smokes and drinks through '6 Feet Beneath the Moon' video

Dan Reilly

Whether it's water skiing or lounging in a hammock, everyone has a favorite summer activity. Judging by King Krule's "Easy Easy" video, his seems to be dressing up in an oversized suit and wandering around drinking, smoking, and trespassing. Everybody needs a hobby, right?

The visuals perfectly complement the summertime boredom of Krule's Billy Bragg-on-downers song, which appears on his upcoming debut full-length, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. He sneers at the camera on a sun-soaked day while delivering lyrics like, "And with your dead-end job / That's been eating away your life / You feel a little inside / The trouble and strife," in his thickly accented bottom-heavy way. It's as if he's trying to portray the anti-bling lifestyle of a blue-collar Londoner with all the swagger of a hip-hop star who's stuck rolling his own cigarettes (or joints, as the case may be).

True Panther and XL will release 6 Feet Beneath the Moon on August 24, King Krule's 19th birthday. For a present, we'd recommend buying him a suit that actually fits.
