Lazy Day Unveils New Song ‘Bright Yellow’

    Lazy Day – the project of London-based songwriter Tilly Scantlebury – has released a new single, ‘Bright Yellow’. Listen to it below.

    The song’s origins trace back to Scantlebury’s PhD in Queer American Art, a project that led to a three-year break from Lazy Day. “My research was focussed on queer representation in contemporary art,” they explained. “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.”
