THE LAZY HABITS

 

“The best house party your parents never wanted you to have” – The Sun


2012 is finally here and brings with it the long awaited debut album from Lazy Habits, which will be released this Spring, with a lead single and a full UK tour.

Uncompromising, infectious and original, Lazy Habits are ready to take their place amongst the growing stars of the UK Urban Music Scene. 

Inspired by New Orleans jazz, soul, hip hop, Big Bands of the 50’s and soaked in British Culture their eclectic sound packs a lasting and unforgettable punch, with the band describing themselves as “Beats, Rhymes and Brass of the highest calibre”

Originally the brainchild of one MC, the Hackney based outfit now stand as a full seven piece band, whose onstage energy is a colossal live experience that will keep you buzzing long after you’ve left the venue. 

Having notched up shows at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, The Roundhouse, KOKO and Sold Out The Jazz Cafe, hitting venues up and down the UK, supporting the likes of Mos Def, Soulwax, The Specials, Bonobo, Chali 2Na (Jurassic5) and Beardyman, Lazy Habits have won hearts and blown minds, proving they can take on any stage.

 They’ve smashed Glastonbury with their live performances, hosted and DJ’d on “The Other” and “Jazz World” stages, ticking off slots at Bestival, Lovebox, Green Man, The Big Chill, Soundwave, Secret Garden Party and Edinburgh Festival along the way, to mention just a few.

Their debut self-released EP ‘On the Wagon’ put the Habits on the radar of Taste Maker Huw Stephens, and blew up on the underground scene, selling out on pre-orders alone. Their most recent single ‘Starting Fires’ caused controversy as it was scheduled for release the week of the London riots and was consequently pulled from radio play lists across the board.

The band had an enormous reaction to the track with remixes being picked up by Hatcha’s label & included on the Kiss FM Dubstep compilation.



Championed by Eliza Doolittle, Paloma Faith, The Noisettes and a whole host of BBC radio DJ’s, including Huw, this lot will defy you not to be on your playlist in 2012.
