Lazy Habits

UK

Fast-tongued hip-hoppers with a jazz-soul underbelly

Stick the achievements of Lazy Habits into the format of a CV and it makes for one impressive resumé. They’ve not only toured alongside, or shared bills with, the likes of MosDef, Jurassic 5’s Chali 2na, Bonobo and The Herbaliser, but one of their videos features the acting talents of Golden Globe winner Taron Edgerton, the man who portrayed Elton John in Rocketman. It’s easy to see their appeal, to understand why others want to work with them. We’re in agreement with The Skinny magazine who note that “lyrically, they’re edgy and relevant”. Their tightly rapped verses tell tales of modern life and modern people, of heroes and chancers, of the faithful and of those not to be trusted. And these vignettes come delivered in a wraparound sound that takes in jazz, soul, swing and ska. There’s nothing lazy about these boys.
