Originally just the bedroom project of songwriter Tilly Scantlebury, Lazy Day grew into a full band when her self-recorded Garageband tracks started taking off on Soundcloud and drawing attention from many quarters of the independent music press. After recruiting drummer Beni Evans, guitarist Liam Hoflay and Jonathan Coddington on bass, Scantlebury has continued to impress with a series of singles wrapped deep with emotion plus the EP ‘Ribbons’ which exhibited her wide spanning take on indie rock across a short succession of seven tracks.

Her latest release is new single ‘Double j’ which takes its kews from the 90’s alt rock the grew out of the grunge years and is an ode to her best mate.

“I wrote ‘Double j’ about my best friend and how she gets me through a lot. It feels really good to talk about her strength and all that it does for me, especially shouting about it in the big choruses. These are the happiest lyrics I’ve ever written, and I wanted the music to properly reflect that – to be a fierce celebration of friendship.” – Tilly Scantlebury

‘Double j’ will appear on the upcoming EP ‘Letters’ which was recorded with producer Steph Marziano (Radiohead, The Prodigy, Mumford & Sons) at Czar Street Studios in London and will be out on 22nd March via Lazy Day’s very own label Weird Cool Records.

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.

“I wrote ‘Hiccup’ two summers ago when I found myself in a romantic situation that I wasn’t ready for,” says Tilly. “The song is about not knowing what someone else is thinking and ending up in your own head. I wanted to play with the idea of a ‘hiccup’ – a weird involuntary bodily reflex that causes disruption, even if only for a second. A hiccup is like an unpredictable bump in the road, and it was a way for me to express the lack of control I felt I had at the time. I had a lot of fun mirroring this in the music, especially with the band in the studio – chopping and changing the pace and feel of the song so you’re never quite sure what’s next.”

Lazy Day tie together singles with Ribbons EP

Lazy Day started life back in 2014 as the solo bedroom project of Tilly Scantlebury. Now expanded to a four piece, the band are set to head out on their first ever headline tour in support of an upcoming EP, Ribbons, out on the excellent Lost Map Records the label are delighted to welcome the return of this London based lo-fi dreamy-grunge quartet Lazy Day with their shimmering and soaring new track ‘Hiccup’ 

Prior to Ribbons’ release the band have shared their excellent new single, Hiccup, a shimmering fusion of sweet, melodic dream-pop and scuzzy grungy guitar wailing. Discussing the inspiration behind the track, Tilly has suggested it is about not knowing where you stand, contrasting the emotional bumps in the road every relationship experiences, with the involuntary physical reaction of a hiccup. The band have also attempted to mirror that physical reaction in the jerky rhythms and tempo shifts present throughout the track. Ambitious and intriguing, Hiccup seems like the start of a promising new chapter for Lazy Day.
