London quartet Lazy Day have just released 'Hiccup', the second single from their forthcoming EP, Ribbons. The highly anticipated EP is set for release on 10” vinyl and digital formats on September 15, 201 via Lost Map Records. 'Hiccup' precedes Lazy Day’s first UK headline tour, which begins on Monday, September 18th ith 12 dates around the UK.
The band, fronted by Tilly Scantlebury had this to say about 'Hiccup', “I wrote ‘Hiccup’ two summers ago when I found myself in a romantic situation that I wasn’t ready for. 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."
With each new release, the band continues to build on their already impressive resume with perfectly crafted and produced snapshots of love and loss. They're evolving sonically, tightening their musical prowess, but have managed to retain what makes Lazy Day so special, their vulnerable core. It's the bit that sticks with you, haunting and relatable, so much so that it gnaws at you. Our hearts are never perfect, they are messy things, and seldom make any sense, but if a heart could talk, this is what it would say. Find the enchanting 'Hiccup' below.
