Published May 31, 2016Aussie rockers the Lazys are the opposite of what their name implies. They dropped their self-titled debut full-length back in 2014 and have been keeping busy bringing the tracks to life on stage since. Now, they're giving the record another push by serving up some visual accompaniment to album cut "Howling Woman."
The clip finds the group taking viewers on a tour of Sydney while performing, hamming it up for the camera to ensure a unique and engaging sightseeing experience. In addition to taking the opportunity to show off their hometown, they also pay homage to longstanding legends and fellow Aussies AC/DC.
Speaking to Exclaim!, the band's Leon Harrison had this to say about the video:
We wanted to make a video in our back yard that showcased Sydney in all its glory! We also wanted to continue the legacy of playing live in the public domain similar to that of AC/DC in their video "Long Way to the Top" when they played on a flat bed truck down Swanston St. in Melbourne back in 1976. These days If it's not smoke and mirrors it's abstract and weird, but as a rock band we had no interest in anything other than making a video that honours our beautiful city, captures the essence of rock n roll and a statement that despite any adversity our genre faces we'll never stop believing and giving to the cause.
