AHEAD of their set at Tenement Trail on Saturday, Lazy Day have shared a brand new track called ‘Real Feel’.

It’s the first piece of new music we’ve heard from the band since their ‘Letters’ EP back in March and it finds them taking another big step forward with beefed up guitars and a fresh immediacy to their songwriting. Led by the powerful vocals of Tilly Scantlebury, the singer is tender and raw in equal measure, displaying lots of dynamics in her voice over chugging rhythms and heartfelt lyrics. It’s an expressive return from the outfit that digs deep but ultimately finds optimism in moving forwards.

There’s a real sense of emotional polarities as she explains: ‘Real Feel’ is about being pushed and pulled between the past and the present, and between being sad and feeling hopeful. I find it scary how much control your past has over you and your future, so a lot of these lyrics deal with this fear of being dragged backwards. Ultimately though, this song feels like a reminder to myself to not let things get in the way of being happy, and to keep moving forwards.”

Catch Lazy Day at Tenement Trail at Creative East End at 7.45pm.
