On this year’s Letters EP, London based four-piece Lazy Day truly come into their own. From the force of grunge-infused opener Double j to the pained introspection of Mostly Me, the band have cemented their growth from Tilly Scantlebury’s original solo project to something altogether more sprawlingly powerful.

Who?

Lazy Day are vocalist Tilly Scantlebury, drummer Beni Evans, guitarist Liam Hoflay, and bassist Kris Lavin.

The sound

Dream-pop at its most raw, Lazy Day offer a beautiful blend of hushed vocals over ethereal guitar work that effortlessly propels the music towards the stars. Simultaneously whimsical and undeniably powerful, the four-piece deliver an ebb and flow of vocal crashes and drawn out soundscapes, indebted to indie but offering so much more.

The story

Lazy Day began life in 2014 as the reflective solo bedroom project of vocalist Tilly Scantlebury, and quickly grew to where they are now. Their debut, 2017’s Ribbons was the product of the end of a five-year relationship, allowing Tilly to look back at the past with a mixture of sadness and understanding. This year’s follow-up EP Letters is equally as hopeful. Lead single Double j, the punchy grunge-tinged opener, is nothing short of a celebration of friendship.

“I wrote Double j about my best friend and how she gets me through a lot,” said Tilly earlier this year when unveiling the track. “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.”

Having teamed up with Beni Evans, Liam Hoflay and Kris Lavin (the most recent addition to the band), Tilly has wrapped both these positive and negative emotions in a dream-like grunge package that perfectly portrays the contradictions of emotions.

Live, Lazy Day have already joined the likes of Jay Som, Alex Lahey and Amber Arcades on the road, with a fair share of headline shows under their belt too. Having played The Great Escape Festival at the start of May and Camden Rocks the following month, their summer also sees them appear at Community Festival and Kendal Calling, among others.

Their biggest shows to date are also on the horizon, joining indie veterans Bloc Party across the summer.

Brighton artist Salt Ashes has been making waves over the past few years with her atmospheric synthpop tunes. 

The musician released her debut self-titled album in 2016, featuring the single Save It, which reached No.22 on the Billboard Dance Club Chart. 

In February the artist dropped her latest single, the emotionally charged Don’t. Watch the official video for the tune below: 

Salt Ashes - Don't | Official Video - YouTube

Salt Ashes is playing a huge show at London’s Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, London on Friday 14 June 2019, and to celebrate, we got the musician to make us a playlist of some of her favourite tunes to listen to whilst on the road, and tell us a bit about them. 

Take a listen below: 

Grimes – We Appreciate Power

This track just makes me want to move, scream, writhe, feel. It’s so raw and industrial with a great message.

Grimes - We Appreciate Power (Lyric Video) - YouTube

LP – Lost On You

This track puts me in a state of calm and bliss. I adore LP’s voice and just think this is great songwriting. The chorus gets me every time. This live session is so awesome!!!

LP - Lost On You [Live Session] - YouTube

JYLDA – The Body

I’ve been working with JYLDA recently who’s a new artist that I’m so excited by. She has a Bjork and Lykke Li vibe to me. I love how free she is with her voice and producing style. 

JYLDA - The Body (Official Video) - YouTube

Black Honey – Midnight

Black Honey are friends of mine and have been going from strength to strength. I’m addicted to Izzy’s lyrics and their visuals are insane. She shares my passion with putting as much effort into the visuals as the music. 

Black Honey - Midnight - YouTube

Sevdaliza – Darkest Hour 

The build in this song is delicious. It takes you on a journey through security and dreaminess until the drop which just makes you want to dance. Sevdaliza is a great artist who, in my opinion, is creating gold at the moment. 

SEVDALIZA - DARKEST HOUR (Lyric Video) - YouTube

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Sacrilege

It’s an old one but so, so good. The video for this is so captivating, I love the concept and how dark it is. 

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Sacrilege - YouTube

Salt Ashes plays Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, London on Friday 14 June 2019. Tickets are available now through TicketWeb

Shura

Shura - BKLYNLDN - YouTube

Shura makes a stunning return with brand new track BKLYNLDN, the first taste of Shura’s much-anticipated second album, which she is currently working on in the wake of 2016’s celebrated debut, Nothing’s Real.

BKLYNLDN marks the start of a new chapter (musically, geographically, emotionally) for Shura. That timeless look at long-distance romantic longing – if told through the modern lens of apps, texts, and anxiety-inducing silences – it’s a cinematic, exquisitely intimate examination of what presence and absence means in modern relationships; a passionate, tactile record about connection in volatile times; and, despite its cleansed sonic palette, still the unmistakable sound of Shura.
