Lazy Bones
Lazy Bones
Fronted by songwriters/multi instrumentalists Sam Stein and Brendan Olivieri, Lazy Bones was formed in 2017 in the strange and erratic upstate New York town of Ithaca. Indeed, the band’s music is quite erratic as well. Ranging from the sunny, shimmering Indie-pop of Take it Back and Existential Crisis to the hectic melancholy of Restless Sleeper, Lazy Bones’ sound draws on a wide variety of influences (MBV, Alvvays, Real Estate, and UMO to name a few) and can be difficult to categorize- though it is distinctly their own. The band found their footing playing DIY venues and house parties around town and was soon being asked to open for bigger acts passing through including Diet Cig, Vundabar, Wolf Parade, and Active Bird Community.
In early 2018, shortly after releasing Take it Back in the Fall, Lazy Bones embarked on their first tour of the East Coast and Midwest circuit. Captivated by their wonderful and bizarre experiences performing in basements and sleeping on strangers’ couches, the trio returned with a renewed vigor to create. It was then that the band recorded their second single, Existential Crisis, which was released in March 2018 and received recognition as one of Spotify’s 150 freshest finds of the year. The band took a hiatus that Summer, during which Stein found himself living in near isolation in a small town near Woodstock, where in loneliness he experienced a creative resurgence, writing much of the material for Lazy Bones’ upcoming album, including Restless Sleeper.
Sam Stein and drummer Caleb Matheson record, mix, and produce all of Lazy Bones’ music themselves with a neuroticism that has lead to lush, well crafted studio creations the likes of which are rare for a group still in its infancy. Lazy Bones is going on a second tour in early 2019, and expects to release their first full-length project the following Spring.
