Open minds making music –
June 26, 2020 – The Nordic rock five-piece act continues to explore dynamic punk-spirited echoes with this latest release. The track dives into the unending struggle of sobriety and the journey to some sort of recovery. “Sober” thematically leans on this despairing, vacant feeling after the party has come to an aching end. Through the band’s raw vocals, busting guitars, and snappish drums, Lazy Queen digs a bit deeper here with a poignant yet melancholic examination of striving to find stability and normalcy in everyday life.
“Growing up, I wish I’d been presented with a more nuanced picture of what recovery looks like. More often than not, I don’t really see the Hollywood-perfect story arc of heroically fighting your daemons, finding resolution and living happily ever after that we’re presented in a lot of media fitting into real life,” says lead singer Henrik García Søberg over email.
