Review: "Floating Rock" - Easha



Since the pandemic, society has had a shift in mentality. Many of us have come to believe things are pointless and at any point everything can be shut down again. Gen Z has coined this mentality as Floating Rock Mentality. The sentiment is why do these silly tasks because they are all meaningless in the grand scheme of things. We’re all just standing on a floating rock hurtling through space. Might as well just live life and forget about the rest. Easha has this same mentality in her track, Floating Rock.



Floating Rock is a track birthed out of greatness. Its roots are in Liz Rose Publishing, the grammy winning publishing house that houses tracks such as All Too Well and You Belong With Me. The record features an upbeat groove that follows a disco-type rhythm and solid use of funky guitars. The guitars shimmer through the background while Easha’s harmonies season the foreground. Floating Rock toys with the idea of liberation from life’s responsibilities and does it with a smile. Creating a Lofi pop space that resonates with everyone with similar thoughts to Easha. The track, despite its nihilist approach to life, has a happy tone. The lyrics influence the soundscape, the way they pop and bounce against the bassline. Floating Rock takes the listener on a journey of self-discovery worth a lifetime. Reminding everyone life is worth living and to stay in the moment rather than focus on the mundane of what the world offers.


Easha is a 22-year-old singer-songwriter with immense talent. She began her journey with music at a young age, learning Indian classical music from her mother. Later, she began writing her music following a binge of Norah Jones records. Outside of singing her passion lies in the pen. Her writing has been featured in many large publications including The Atlantic and Music Inc. Magazine. It truly shows her raw talent for writing and how her passion for English and her background in music mesh beautifully to create the songs she has. Her EP Leave a Message, I’m Not Here is a testament to her ability and features Floating Rock.
