Nobody really sounds like Lazy Habits. The London-based sextet have been merging alien genres old and new to create three consecutive and indulgently expansive albums over 10 years. With their third instalment, Vermillion Sands, reaching its final stages just before the pandemic, its time has come to step into the limelight.

With a grit and rhythmic drive that is unmistakably homegrown, Lazy Habits set apart their urban London swagger by injecting a myriad of influences into each track. As crunching percussion has clattered across their 2016 release, other cuts feature a drunken, almost debaucherous kinship to New Orleans’ jazz scene. With soul, jazz and industrial tendencies all becoming brushstrokes contributing to an extravagant and unique painting, Lazy Habits seem ever determined to make something new and challenging.

To accompany the upcoming record, the band embark on a headline tour, bringing their brooding basslines and ominous performance to The Cluny 2 on Friday 15th April. With a plethora of new content, there has never been a more obvious time to dive into the world of Lazy Habits. 

Lazy Habits play The Cluny 2, Newcastle on Friday 15th April.
