The N4 Stage
The songs on Lazy Day’s new E.P, Letters, due March 22nd on the band’s own label, are songs constructed from the debris of life. Big feelings. Big consequences. Letters’ songs are delivered via Tilly Scantlebury’s remarkable voice; all gravitas, all ballast, like sand flowing down the tide of a river. Its union with Lazy Day’s old-fashioned alternative rock – in the very best, rustic, timeless sense – owes something to PJ Harvey, Patti Smith, even to Karen O of Tilly’s beloved Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
All the greats will tell you; you’ve got to lay it on the line to even stand a chance of ever knowing who you are. You’ve got to climb up there and you’ve got to jump off. To open yourself up and let it all pour out. Letters is Tilly’s way of doing exactly that, and the best statement of Lazy Day’s message yet.
