Formed in a crypt under a church in Kings Cross, LAZYTALK tell stories about love, life, lager and the messed up world we are living in. Fusing Indie, Reggae, Ska, Punk, and Jungle; its music from the heart with beats you can skank to.
To date the band’s brilliant live shows have seen them play support slots for The Specials and Babyshambles on their UK Tour, and appeared at various festivals in the UK and across Europe including Glastonbury, Kendall Calling, Isle of Wight Festival, The Great Escape, LeeFest, One Love Festvial, Record Store Day Soho, and Rock For People in The Czech Republic to name a few. Not to mention collaborations with Dr Martens and their most recent video debuting on The Fred Perry blog..
Lazytalk are proud to align themselves with the themes of British Youth culture championed by the Punk and Ska movements of the 70
s and 80s ; the iconic UK dance music of the 90s and are determined to bring back a sense of rebellion to the pop charts. No matter how long it takes……
Debut EP “Luzaville” produced by GORDON RAPHAEL (The Strokes, The Libertines) was released in 2013 with the title track Luzaville featuring on the Gary Crowley BBC introducing show for 6 consecutive weeks as well as national radio play on BBC 6 music and other local radio stations.

What people have been saying about the band:
“The stimulating thing about LazyTalk is their originality and Britishness. They’re not attempting to recreate an American sound or regurgitate anything from the past. They are individual. Their gigs feel less like events and more like a musical movement”
Martin Cater, Stage and Screen Insider
“Happy Mondays meets the Streets. Potentially Massive”
MIkey – This Feeling
“Big things ahead for these guys.. The track Luzaville has become a favorite on my Saturday show”
Gary Crowley – BBC London 94.9
“Luzaville is quite simply a song that could only be born in our city of London. Right now in music, it’s all about lyricism and wordplay, that’s why I love listening to the songs from LazyTalk.”
Uche Uchendu – BBC 1Xtra
‘Lazytalk have been one of our favourite bands here at Strummerville for some time. They channel the spirit of Joe Strummer and what he stood for in their music and that’s what were all about.
