Manchester group Y.O.U.N.G have released their new single ‘Lazy’.
The five piece – made up of Chez, Tom, Graeme, Benjamin and Jamie – kick back in the new single with chilled hip-hop beats and mellow reggae guitars alongside a bleary-eyed flow, rising into an infectious chorus. Perfect anthem for all the lazy people across the world!
‘Lazy’ follows the release of ‘Exposure’ in late 2017, which has had over 200,000 combined views on YouTube whilst its remixes entered the Music Week Club Chart Top 10.
Rapper Ben James said of the track, “Our whole lives people have been calling us lazy. The track plays on the idea of what we would do every day if we were as lazy as people said. It’s true everybody has lazy days, we are no exception, but overall the aim of ‘Lazy’ is to mock the idea that all we do is nothing.
“The chorus is written from the point of view of the patronising adult, whilst the rap verse gives a first hand view of what a lazy day would consist of. Even though the song is a mockery, we can’t deny that brews, candles and chilling are genuine passions of ours! Dressing gowns make an appearance in the live show, bringing the laid back bedroom vibes to the stage and adding to the tongue in cheek nature of the tune.”
Meanwhile the lads will also be going out on their first ever UK headline tour in association with Live Nation through February and March. The band will play five-dates with tickets are on sale now via TicketWeb.
