The foursome have had a busy summer, performing at festivals such as Latitude, The Great Escape, Community, Kendall Calling and more.

Ahead of their upcoming shows, including an appearance at Glasgow’s Tenement Trail,  Lazy Day vocalist Tilly picks out some of the tunes they’ll be listening to on the road, whiling away those long hours on the motorway.

Pixx – Bitch
“I’ve played this song pretty much every day since I first heard it. It’s become part of my five a day. Delicious”

SASAMI – Take Care
“I love everything about this song – Sasami’s voice, the lyrics, the production.”

The Japanese House – Saw You In A Dream
“Soothing and sad and groovy and brilliant. We’ve listened to this whole album a lot this summer.”

Little Simz – Offence
“Every good playlist needs a track that makes you feel powerful. This is a very good pre-show song to pump us up. I said it with my chest and I don’t care who I offend, uh-huh!”

Jay Som – Tenderness
“Melina is a day dot musical genius and her new album shows that completely. A properly special collection of songs and this tune is especially good for our souls.”

Big Thief – Not
“Collectively our favourite band and probably takes the title of the most played in the van. We went on a band date to see them play at The Roundhouse and recently saw them play this new album start to finish at Bush Hall, to a small room of very lucky people.”

Julia Jacklin – Head Alone
“This song is timeless and an instant favourite. We saw her play at Latitude and felt overwhelmed in a good way.”

Stella Donnelly – Die
“I saw Stella’s show recently and I’ve stolen her dance moves. They come in handy when listening to her album and also at the discotheque.”

Amy Winehouse – Addicted
“This is the first song that gets played every time we get in the van. It’s the top song on my iTunes and when I get that sweet, sweet Bluetooth connection Amy starts our journey off in style.”
