London band Lazy Day will be releasing their Letters EP on March 22nd through Weird Cool. They've already shared 'Double j', their ode to best friends, and this time out it's 'Mumma', another song in honour of an important person in their lives. Tilly Scantlebury goes into more detail:

“I wrote 'Mumma' about my mum, but kind of for her as well. She’s the greatest woman I know, and has made everything possible for me. The song is about being our best and our worst with each other, and being so similar that we always feel connected. I wrote 'Mumma' when I was writing my PhD proposal, when I was researching motherhood and the assumptions and expectations which surround it, so I already had mums on the brain. 'Mumma' brings together my personal life, my academic research and Lazy Day into one place - which is a really cool thing to be able to do. This is also one of two songs on the new EP that I produced myself - so that makes it even more special to me.”

It's likely that most have experienced the vertiginous feeling of looking in the mirror and seeing a parent, or caught themselves saying or doing something that is eerily reminiscent of them, and Lazy Day have managed to capture the tumultuous nature of that realisation in 'Mumma'. The bucking guitars give the song an oomph that expounds on the joy of being alive, but also contains with it the frustrations of seeing history repeat itself in some unexpected ways - especially in Scantlebury's powerful vocal. Channeling early PJ Harvey, she weaves her sultry way amidst the muscular guitars, decrying the fact of her visage becoming too similar to her mum's - but ultimately the feeling is one of sheer love.
