Troye Sivan Delivers Pure ’80s Nostalgia With New ‘Easy’ Teasers: Watch

Troye Sivan has dipped his toe in a solid variety of pop sounds, but with his latest song, it looks like the singer is trying out something new by going back to something old.

On Monday (July 13), Sivan posted two teaser clips of his upcoming single, titled “Easy.” The singer announced the song in a series of posts on his Instagram last week, stating that the tune would be released everywhere at 7 a.m. PT on Wednesday, July 15. “Very very scared to, but putting out this song next week,” he wrote.

The new clips offer up a taste of what fans can expect: The song heavily features an ’80s-inspired synth sound, with a simple drum beat keeping time. Sivan’s voice croons through his natural baritone as he sings “Between you and me, it hasn’t been easy, darling.”

The videos, though, show Sivan (filmed on what looks like actual film) in a series of lo-fi kind of atmostpheres. First, he’s shown sitting in a simple, red void looking over his shoulder at the camera. In the second clip, Sivan is actually singing along to the song, dressed in what looks like an almost Rick Astley-esque trench coat.

Troye Sivan’s “Easy” drops Wednesday, July 15, at 7 a.m. PT. Check out both clips of the new song below:
