For this week’s Artist Spotlight, we’re focusing in on the London based dream-pop come fuzzy slacker rock group Lazy Day.
Lazy Day started as a project in 2012, from lead Tilly Scantlebury before eventually growing into a fully fledged four piece of grungy guitar riffs, steady beats, and vocals that feel like a mix between Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell and Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell.
Tilly started Lazy Day as a solo bedroom project aside to her previous group Hella Better Dancer, recording demos through garageband and releasing them for our listening pleasure on Soundcloud. “I went to America with my family and recorded the first demo of ‘Disappear’. I snuck my dad’s laptop when him and my mum were trying to watch Mad Men – but this demo was more important” explains Tilly for Line of Best Fit.
Lazy Day’s most recent release ‘With My Mind’ pairs a wonderfully airy guitar with the melodic dreamy vocals of Scantlebury, before bursting into it’s more grungy energetic side and cuts in like a knife through the dreamscape – before letting you drift off again, a near perfect ebb and flow.
With four tracks currently available for public listening the group are sitting on incredible reviews from music magazines and blogs, air time from Lauren Laverne of BBC 6 Music, a record store day release from 2015, and being part of the prestigious Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition.
Lazy Day have recently announced a nationwide tour, after a sold out show at London’s venue The Waiting Room, which can be found on their social media. If you’re a fan of melancholic melodies and feedback ridden dreamy yet grungy guitars, then Lazy Day are for you and we can’t wait to see where this band go, they’re set for big things.
Lazy Day are:
Tilly Scantlebury (Vocals, Guitar)
