Especially by Santa

Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Toothfairy, and the list goes on when we think about all the lies we’ve been told during childhood (for those under 18, please skim our Terms of Use). Glasgow-based quartet Dead Pony captures that feeling of betrayal into one rock’n’roll piece titled “Everything is Easy” where they dissect our incurable childhood traumas. Like that time you found your Christmas presents in the car two days before Santa was supposed to give you:

“‘Everything is Easy’ is a take on how simple childhood experiences can be soured as you grow older,” explained frontwoman Anna Shields. “Lyrically, we tried to capture that feeling of betrayal you feel as a young, naïve child when you find out Santa isn’t real or that your conception wasn’t via your Dad finding a snotter on the wall and raising it to become you. We came up with this idea after having discussed how ridiculous the things were we believed as children”
