Lazy Day - 'Bright Yellow'

Today sees London-based songwriter Tilly Scantlebury return under their moniker Lazy Day sharing the scintillating new single Bright Yellow, which coincides with their signing to Brace Yourself Records. Rich in pop aesthetics, the track's bubbling melodies and catchy choruses deliver an energising listen, and offers up a new and exciting introduction to the latest chapter in their music. With support slots for Honeyblood later this year the track comes perfectly poised to whet our appetities for the year ahead. Sharing more about the release Lazy Day goes on to say, "My research was focussed on queer representation in contemporary art. Catherine Opie’s photographic portrait series Being and Having from 1991 was the work that sparked ‘Bright Yellow’. It’s made up of the faces of 13 queer people, captured like comical mugshots against a bright yellow background: “Kings like them had never been seen.” At its very best, art can change the way that we see and think and live, acting like a window into another world — which is how I want my music and this song to feel as well." Take a listen for yourselves below.
