The Dublin band's newest single, which was released in October, was recorded with Declan Legge and features mixing credits from Grammy Award-winning producer Brian Malouf.
The track speaks to relationships which have gone stagnant from people stifling one another's ambitions, making each other lazy.
The video, directed by Garth Welch and filmed in Berlin, dramatizes the physical manifestation of this - where couples literally cling to each other as they go about their day-to-day lives.
Speaking about their latest single with Hot Press, vocalist and guitarist Shea Tohill said: “L.A.Z.Y. was a track that came about really quickly for us. It all stems from when Dave (Orchid Collective bandmate) and I were living together. We used to jam in our living-room every morning, not seriously trying to write or anything, just jamming. I was playing with my guitar pedal and one of the riffs for ‘L.A.Z.Y.’ just sort of came out and found its way onto the guitar loop. As soon as we heard it, Dave quickly laid down some lyrics and before we knew it we had the skeleton of a song right there.
“We played the track throughout the summer at every gig and festival that we could. It always seemed to go down really well, the audience was really getting behind it, so we decided, ‘OK, let’s go with this for our new single.’
“‘L.A.Z.Y.’ was recorded in Big Space Studios, in Newry, with Declan Legge. We finished it early in September and then over the course of the month we managed to get in contact with a guy called Brian Malouf, over in LA, who seemed really interested in us and he offered to mix the track. That was incredible, because he’s a Grammy Award winner and has worked with the likes of Madonna, Michael Jackson and Pearl Jam over the years. He’s given the track that extra polish that we were looking for."
