Lacey Cole left the Blue Mountains in a dust-cloud of broken relationships and personal controversies. Hardly unscathed, and undoubtedly guilty, he had at least stolen away with him this collection of songs. Steeped in religion, love, betrayal, death, anxiety and violence; Cole’s music proves his ability as a captivating storyteller while the album’s production supports his narrative in its sparse textures and vulnerability. Recorded over two years and numerous late nights at St John’s Bishopthorpe Church in Sydney’s inner-west, Other Ways To Say The Same Thing is precisely that- an evolving understanding of a time when love was lost; faith, misguided; and the hope of forgiveness was still a long way off.

An ongoing thank you to all the musicians and friends whose talents and personalities colour every song; the fellowship of the bros; my housemates- Eloise, Kitty & Dean; Steppie and Joo Joo; Paul Perini and the community at St John’s Bishopthorpe; my sweet babe Shuggie; and the good grace that lets me hinge a medium to the muse and the madness without.

Turning their back on the stripped back acoustic approach of previous incarnations, for their full-band debut Lazy Colts have opted for brooding, cinematic landscapes, explosive drums and unhinged sonic textures assisted by the incomparable talents of Canadian mixing engineer Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Timber Timbre). ... more
