LAZY COLTS release ‘twenty two’ single and vid + announce ‘trojan’ album + tour

Lazy Colts’ debut album, Trojan is a fine example of the state of Australian songwriting.  Broad, triumphant, and satisfying, yet devastating, emotive and raw, the group have put a mirror to the human experience and Trojan is the result.  Mixed by renowned engineer, Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Timber Timbre), the release has been two years in the making and calls upon a variety of influences including The National, Nick Cave andBruce Springsteen.  Recorded in part inside a local church, Cole reflects on the process, “I’m not sure if the songs would sound the same if they were written and performed in a living room or garage.  There is definitely a reverence or awareness of the space and the mood the empty church sets which lives on in the album…Trojan is set against grand backdrops of religion, myth, violence and politics, but the songs themselves are more personal, focusing on relationships and the fleeting moments between people.”

Lazy Colts will be hitting the road on a national tour in August to celebrate the release of Trojan.  Giving fans a taste of what to expect from the shows, Cole enthuses, “Audiences can expect energy, passion, dynamic arrangements and musicianship.  The rest of the band bring an element of sophistication and skill which strikes a nice balance with my more unhinged vibe.  All in all, it’s a good time, it’s like rays of light through storm clouds.”
