‘Loving You Is Easy’ is the second single to be taken from The Charlatans gold album, ‘Up At The Lake’. The single lays out its stall in the title, it is a love song. It lifts it’s opening line from Minnie Ripperton’s ‘Loving You’ and later becomes reminiscent of Carly Simon’s ‘Your So Vain’ while still keeping true to The Charlatans laid back guitar pop sound. If you are in a soppy mood and want to hear a mature UK Indie sound with some West coast influences, this is your song.
Up at the Lake
According to chalatans.net this single is a radio only single and you cannot buy it in the shops (unless you can pick up one of the 500 promo copies from eBay). If you like the sound of the single then you are going to have to treat yourself the album as an extra Christmas present.
