STR4TA is the brainchild of close friends and collaborators Gilles Peterson and Jean-Paul “Bluey” Maunick. A jazz funk experiment with a psychedelic flair, their new single “Lazy Days” with Emma-Jean Thackray is a sophisticated delight.
A bustling tune with with a retro swing, “Lazy Days” is rich with organic instrumentals. A song ornate with complex polyrhythms and an accessible groove, STR4TA’s jazzy new track decorates space with sound. At once soulful, retro, and new, “Lazy Days” is impressive and unpretentious.
