After a run of dreamy singles, London’s Lazy Day have graced us with their first proper collection of tunes.  Four songs, interlaced with three ‘Ribbons’, tying together their debut EP.   Features the singles ‘With My Mind’ and ‘Hiccup’.  Lost Map Records are delighted to welcome London lo-fi dreamy-grunge quartet Lazy DayRibbons was released on 10” vinyl

The EP follows Lazy Day’s now long-since sold-out Record Store Day 2015 split 7” single with Tuff Love, ‘Portait’ ‘Groucho’, and 2016’s ‘Disappear’7” single, as well as the PostMap postcard single With My Mind, released earlier this year, which also features on the  Ribbons EP.

Lazy Day began life in 2014 as the bedroom solo project of Tilly Scantlebury. Self-recording her tracks on Garageband and making them available to hear via SoundCloud, she quickly gained extensive attention and praise from many respected music websites and blogs. Since expanding to a four-piece band currently featuring drummer Beni Evans, guitarist Liam Hoflay and newest member bassist Jake Head, they’ve gone on to twice be longlisted for Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition.

Huge, crashing and anthemic yet always deeply personal and intimate and with a delicate eye for detail, Ribbons captures Lazy Day in a key stage of their development. From anguished “breakup anthem” ‘With My Mind’, through the hazy hooks of ‘What’s Up’‘Hiccup’and ‘TV’, as interspersed throughout with the variously strange, playful and pretty incidental tracks ‘Ribbon’ #1#2 and #3, it’s an EP that exemplifies the impressively broad range and reach of Tilly’s songwriting, and does so much more than the average EP does.

Ribbons was recorded by Bottle Rocket Recording at The Crows’ Nest Studios, mixed by Adrian Hall (Anna Calvi/Goldfrapp) at Clever Pup Studios and mastered by Andy ‘Hippy’ Baldwin at Metropolis. Artwork and press shot by Eleanor Crewes.
