Lazy Day – Hiccup

London lo-fi pop quartet Lazy Day have unveiled a second taste off their upcoming EP Ribbons, which will be out next month. Hiccup follows the release of With My Mind and last year’s 7″ Disappear / Al The Time, highlighting once again the band’s chemistry with lead singer and songwriter Tilly Scantlebury, whose heartfelt vocal delivery goes hand-in-hand with the shimmering soundscape set by intricate guitar dynamics.

Speaking on the song, Tilly said: “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. 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.

The Ribbons​ EP will be released on on 10” vinyl and digital formats on September 15th via Lost Map Records.
